Time: 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Eastern

The publication and management of Open Access material now plays a central role in the academic research infrastructure, although its impact may differ across disciplines. If, as Heather Joseph of SPARC has written in College and Research Library News, “the full accessibility and utility of articles is a critical part of the design of the research system,” then how can the library ensure that this material, which may be generated via an array of various processes from multiple sources, is easily available for its patrons to discover and use? Join NISO’s presenters for a lively discussion on this timely topic.
