Libraries in Process Community Call: Open Access Outreach in 2021

Please join the ASERL Scholarly Communications Interest Group for our latest Libraries in Process community call on Friday, June 4, 2021, at 2:00 Eastern / 1:00 Central. The topic of this discussion is Open Access Outreach in 2021:

  • How do we do outreach about open access now that it has gone mainstream?
  • Now that the large commercial academic publishers have their own communication and business strategies around OA and are reaching authors directly – does that change our strategy and messaging at all?
  • How have the attitudes of authors on our campuses changed? Do they still have misconceptions, and, if so, are they the same or different from those we encountered 5 or 10 years ago?
  • How does the advent of transformative agreements and read and publish deals change our messaging, if at all? What about the growing trend and community of practice around the cancellation of big-deal journal packages?

Camille Thomas, Scholarly Communications Librarian at Florida State, and Darcee Olson, Copyright & Scholarly Communication Policy Director at Louisiana State, will speak to us about these questions and more to generate discussion on this timely topic, so please come open to sharing your questions and experiences!
