Outreach To Campus Administrators On Open Access Initiatives, Ryne Leuzinger, Jacqui Grallo Oct 2015

Outreach To Campus Administrators On Open Access Initiatives, Ryne Leuzinger, Jacqui Grallo

Open Access Conference

As librarians work to develop and support open access (OA) initiatives, it is essential that they communicate effectively with administrators, from the head of the library to the president or chancellor of their university. Librarians often find themselves at the nexus of OA initiatives and are well-positioned to bring together the interests of various units on campus and advocate for a given initiative to campus administration.

Open Access And The Logic Of Collective Action, John Wenzler Oct 2015

Open Access And The Logic Of Collective Action, John Wenzler

Open Access Conference

In the digital age, academic libraries confront the dilemma of collective action. In the era of print, each library stored, organized and provided access to a collection of scholarly resources for researchers at a local institution. On an integrated electronic network, all of these tasks become shared endeavors. One copy of a journal article housed on an Internet server provides faster and more convenient access to the scholarly community than 1,000 printed copies scattered across the country. Thus, the work of maintaining the article and making it discoverable can be done by one organization for the entire community instead ...
