Description

Has your college or university adopted an Open Access policy? Are you thinking about trying to get your campus to adopt one? At this Birds-of-a-Feather table we will examine both the “how” and the “why” of Open Access policy implementation. If you are curious about Open Access policies – whether you hail from an institution with an established policy, or you are just interested in learning what it might take to get one implemented – this BOF session is for you! We will also discuss how librarians can help faculty comply with the growing number of Open Access implementation policies released by US federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation. Discussion hosts for this table will be Fred Rascoe, Scholarly Communication Librarian at Georgia Tech, and Marlee Givens, Strategic Initiatives Librarian at Georgia Tech, both of whom have extensive experience in campus Open Access policy advocacy, as well as outreach for campus Open Access education and instruction. The outcome of this table will be a connected group of colleagues who can draw on each other's experiences as they bring issues of Open Access to their respective campuses.
