This panel will explore the diverse roles of librarians in supporting the NIH Public Access Policy. Participants will recap the NIHPA policy, PubMedCentral submissions, and bibliographic management tools developed to help identify articles requiring PMC submission. They will also discuss the benefits of this dramatic increase in PMC?s freely available health science articles to researchers and libraries since 2008, alongside counter attempts by opponents hoping to derail the NIH Public Access Policy.
