Our Open Access and collection management working group explores how libraries manage open access content within the context of their broader collection management activities. The aim is to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by open access content through an exploration of challenges, best practices, and standards (whether existing, in development, or needed). This includes integration into existing workflows and systems (especially into discovery systems), models for selection and deselection, and hidden costs in terms of staff and development time.
