Developing and Implementing Open Access Policies: Bring your questions



Tuesday, October 22, 2013, 13:00 - 14:30




Join ACRL for the e-Learning webcast, “Developing and Implementing Open Access Policies: Bring your questions,” on Tuesday, October 22 (1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central).  Offered during International Open Access Week, this ACRL e-Learning webcast makes for an ideal OA week event.

Gather a group on your campus and participate together as two experienced practitioners describe the elements of an effective OA policy, explain why each is important and detail the process for moving a policy forward on your campus. After a basic overview, join in a highly interactive opportunity to pose your questions to the speakers about the development and implementation of open access policies. We welcome participation from those who are both new to the process and issues as well as those already deeply in the policy development or implementation stages. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how to evaluate elements of policy;
  • Learn how to engage and assess stakeholders;
  • Be able to identify the critical pieces for the implementation phase.

Presenters: Ada Emmett, Scholarly Communications Librarian, University of Kansas; Suzanne Kriegsman, Program Manager, Office for Scholarly Communication, Harvard University
