ACRL / SPARC Forum Forum/Update Disneyland Hotel
Disneyland Grand Ballroom South
Description :

Through its standing Scholarly Communications Committee, ACRL sponsors a regular forum at both midwinter and annual conference to broaden the base of librarians who are knowledgeable about and engaged in scholarly communication issues. The highly popular forum series is co-sponsored by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC). The topic and speakers are chosen 60-90 days before the conference based on issues that are most relevant at that time.

A sustainable, Open Access scholarly communication system requires robust, stable sources of funding. One key source of such funding are campus-based Open Access funds – pools of money provided academic institutions specifically earmarked to help authors offset the cost of journal publication. These funds have sprung up on campuses large and small, in colleges and universities across the U.S., Canada, and increasingly, worldwide. How are these funds created? Where are they located and who administers them? Where does the money come from? Are authors using these funds? Where can my institution turn for information on creating such a fund?

This forum will explore all of these questions and more, as a panel of experts delve into the latest developments in creating, implementing and sustaining this crucial resource.

Presenters include:

  • Chuck Eckman, Librarian and Dean of Library Services at Simon Fraser University
  • Sue Kriegsman , Program Manager for the Office for Scholarly Communication at Harvard University Library
  • Andrew Waller, Librarian at University of Calgary

These panelists will share their experiences in establishing and running some of the most visible and longest-running Open Access Campus Funds in existences, and discuss what’s working, what need fine tuning, and what they see pending as new developments on the horizon for these crucial resources.
