Entangled terrain: institutional support for open access

Entangled terrain: institutional support for open access

Many colleges and universities offer institutional support for faculty and graduate students who wish to publish in open access journals. Despite such institutional support, many junior faculty who wish to support open access are warned by senior faculty that publishing in open access journals may be too risky. What is the role of the Library in such a complex conversation, and what are some existing and emerging services for awareness and engagement?

Come to the conference “Unlocking Open Access” and hear Jaron Porciello from Cornell University expand on this topic.
