About the Series
Recent changes in research funding regulations globally and library-lead initiatives are transforming the economics of scholarly publishing. These changes are also fueling a dramatic increase in “born open” publications, including peer-reviewed articles, books, and textbooks. The Open Access Speaker Series will bring you up to date on open access and prepare you to develop collections and outreach strategies that take advantage of this growing body of high-quality, freely-accessible content. Academic, public, and special libraries can all benefit from this series.
