Summary:

Despite their rapid growth and prevalence within the publishing world, open access (OA) and open educational resources (OER) have struggled to find their footing in academic libraries amid well-established database and subscription models. Transformative agreements and publishing mandates are only part of the puzzle. How can you begin to address the persistent misconceptions and hesitancy around adopting OA research at your institution? Join Katie Glaeser and Maryska Connolly from CloudSource as they draw on their academic library backgrounds to address some of the common fallacies about open access resources and outline research-based change strategies for winning over reluctant stakeholders.
