Open Access and Closed Minds?: A Case Study of an Open Access Initiative

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Five librarians from a public, four-year master’s level institution mounted a strategic campaign to talk with faculty about the changes that are happening in scholarly communication because of the open access movement and how our institution can respond to this changing landscape.

Disciplinary biases, traditional mind-sets, and rampant misconceptions have made our efforts more difficult forcing a re-examination of the best ways to reach out to faculty and influence change on campus. Despite these obstacles, the institution is gradually becoming a more supportive climate for open access.

This poster presents programming efforts made, both successful and unsuccessful; resources curated; strategic partnerships developed; and outcomes achieved. Conversations resulting from the outreach initiative served to dispel the initial perception we held of faculty’s resistance to open access publishing.
