I have been an advocate for Open Access since the early 2000’s. My institution, Trinity University (TX, USA) was the first private liberal arts college in the US to pass an Open Access policy (Oct., 2009). I served on the SPARC steering committee for three years, and have spoken at conferences and various institutions on why Open Access is an economic necessity. I am convinced that changes to the scholarly communications system are not just desirable—they are essential. They are no longer just a library concern—this is a matter of importance to the entire higher education ecosystem.
