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: 

*To register:*
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.
