Pre-Conference Workshop LIBRARIES LEADING THE OPEN ACCESS TRANSFORMATION: STRATEGIES TO ACHIEVE THE VISION
The aim of the workshop is to give participants a clear understanding of the essential role that libraries have to play in the transformation of scholarly communications. The aim is also to empower the libraries with key insights in order to develop an action plan to drive the transition towards Open Access through a variety of approaches. In the first part of the workshop, we will introduce some data-driven strategies for achieving more OA and, in the second part, we will explore approaches in an interactive manner, addressing topics such as OA for e-books, Gold OA journals, as well as the transformation of paywalled journals.
Libraries have the power to lead the way in the OA transformation, and there are many ways to do so! This workshop is planned and organised by the LIBER Open Access Working Group in collaboration with OA2020 .
