What are best practices for implementing an OA strategy at your library?

Summary:

While Open Access has been a frequent topic of discussion in scholarly communications circles for more than a decade, relatively few librarians have had the opportunity to work closely with this content to develop best practices around collection management, discovery and assessment of OA materials. We are partnering with Choice to facilitate a dialogue between librarians and vendors about the current OA landscape, developing OA collections, and best practices for implementing an OA strategy at your library.

 Get ready to discuss:

  • The quality and quantity of Open Access available today
  • How libraries are using Open Access to expand their collections and save budget
  • Using open resources to improve student and research satisfaction
