Session A: Open Access Policies and Library/Publisher Collaboration for Mutual Success
This session will explore the importance of campus open access policies and how librarians and publishers are working together to bring more scholarly literature to the world. Delivered in the form of question-led panel discussion, this session will demonstrate ways in which librarians and publishers – open access and traditional -- can work together on mutually agreed-upon goals in a productive manner, while ensuring campus open access policies are able to meet the goals their universities have set for greater access to institutional scholarship.
