April OpenCon Librarian Community Call


2024 has already been an active year for policy, both for open research and open education. The Canadian Tri-Agencies are in the midst of active consultations to update their open research policy to require sharing results without delay. In the U.S., language that would have prevented implementation of the 2022 OSTP Memo was successfully removed from the House CJS appropriations bill before passage, and the Biden Administration has expressed strong support for requiring “inclusive access” textbook programs to be opt-in rather than opt-out. On April 9th at 12pm ET / 9am PT, the next OpenCon Librarian Community Call will feature Katie Steen-James, SPARC’s Manager of Public Policy and Advocacy, who will provide an update on these recent developments and answer questions about what’s next on the policy front for open research and education.

OpenCon Librarian Community Calls are limited to those working in libraries, and registration is required.
