Libraries have used various strategies to engage with faculty, students,
and administrators around changes in the scholarly communication
system. Open access (OA) has become a popular topic and different
initiatives are built around it. These include launching institutional
repositories, creating OA publishing funds, working with faculty and
administrators to institute OA policies, and developing new OA journals
in collaboration with scholars and students. How do these initiatives
relate to libraries' mission and future roles in higher education? What
strategies are used to implement these initiatives and how well have
they worked? This ALCTS e-Forum will explore both how and why libraries
have chosen to invest resources to support OA initiatives. It will also
examine what strategies have been used and how successful they have
been. All are welcome to join us to review and discuss what has been
accomplished in libraries' OA endeavors.
*Adrian Ho* is Scholarly Communication Librarian at The University of
Western Ontario. With assistance of his colleagues, he networks with
different constituents on campus to explore avenues to open up scholarly
content for broader access. Before landing in London, Ontario for his
current job, Adrian worked in collection development and public services
at different institutions in the U.S. and Canada.
*Sarah Shreeves* is currently the Coordinator for the Illinois Digital
Environment for Access to Learning and Scholarship (IDEALS), a set of
services and collections supporting scholarly communication (including
the institutional repository) at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. She is also the Coordinator for the Scholarly Commons,
a space for expert, interdisciplinary research support services and open
workshops for faculty and graduate students to develop skills in areas
such as digital content creation, e-learning and teaching, working with
digital repositories, curation of research data, understanding copyright
issues and author rights, and working with geospatial and numeric data.
*What is an e-forum?*
An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss
matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion
list. The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register
your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and
communicate with other participants through an email discussion. Most
e-forums last two to three days. Registration is necessary to
participate, but it's free. See a list of upcoming e-forums at:
Instructions for registration are available at:
http://bit.ly/eforuminfo. Once you have registered for one e-forum, you
do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the email
list. Participation is free and open to anyone.
