Course check: A conversation with three open access publishers about the challenges of sustainability

Monday, June 25, 2007

Abstract

SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) and ACRL (the Association of College and Research Libraries) today announced that the topic of the upcoming SPARC-ACRL Forum on emerging issues in scholarly communication, to be held during the ALA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, will be “Course check: A conversation with three open access publishers about the challenges of sustainability.

System-wide innovations that increase access to the results of research and scholarship are a key interest for the library community. Library support for these innovations, which ranges from being deeply engaged to dedicating scarce resources, is built upon the principle of open access – on evidence that open access accelerates the production, dissemination, and benefits of new knowledge, and on an understanding of the paths and business models that can deliver it. It is with this last point in mind that three of the most important and innovative leaders in scholarly publishing have been asked to speak at the next SPARC-ACRL Forum.
