This group was dissolved in 2023.
Brings together library staff interested in open access (OA) publishing, including, but not limited to: OA and collection development; transformative agreements; library sponsored author funds; and OA library publishing. The interest group will keep members informed of new policies and practices in this area.
The group's conveners have committed to providing the following activities throughout the year:
- Facilitate year-round discussion in the ALA Connect group;
- Host at least one Core-wide e-Forum on a topic of broad interest within our area of focus,
- Plan an in-person discussion (not a program) at the ALA Annual Conference.
