Description

As librarians work to develop and support open access (OA) initiatives, it is essential that they communicate effectively with administrators, from the head of the library to the president or chancellor of their university. Librarians often find themselves at the nexus of OA initiatives and are well-positioned to bring together the interests of various units on campus and advocate for a given initiative to campus administration. In this presentation, which will be applicable to a broad range of higher education institutions, we will discuss effective practices and key takeaways from an open access initiative at CSUMB that focused on textbook access. This will include recommendations related to engaging administration in a dialogue about an initiative’s goals, as well as how that initiative can be promoted and assessed. Specific strategies that will be covered include connecting open access initiatives with other campus priorities such as accessibility and assessment, as well as how to increase the visibility of successful projects.
