Four speakers will bring diverse perspectives on open access in libraries. The speakers are:

Beth Bernhardt, Assistant Dean for Collection Management and Scholarly Communications, University Libraries, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

Beth Bernhardt will speak about becoming an Open Access Library. This goal can be achieved by integrating advocacy of open access publication into the roles and responsibilities of the entire library staff. This approach leverages existing skills within the library and cultivates buy-in from the organization as a whole.

Brett Bonfield and Ellie Collier, founding editors of In the Library with the Lead Pipe

Brett Bonfield and Ellie Collier, two of the founding editors at the open access journal, In the Library with the Lead Pipe, will talk about getting indexed by EBSCO and the Directory of Open Access Journals, their decision not to use volume and issue numbers, their open peer review process, and their licensing and funding model.

Athena Hoeppner, Electronic Resources Librarian, University of Central Florida
Awareness of Open Access publishing options has increased greatly over the last several years. However, open access content remains nearly undistinguishable from paid content in library systems. The University of Central Florida initiated two projects to raise awareness of the variety, quality, and quantity of OA content. The presenter will describe creating a searchable OA Journals List and resolver in SFX, and a method for placing an icon next to OA articles in EBSCO Discovery Service.
