  Open Access Overview and Issues
Kristin Antelman and Peggy Hoon, NCSU Libraries
This program will review the landscape of open access, including initiatives that both complement and challenge the current scholarly communication model, and discuss ways in which libraries can become involved. Recent conversations on TRLN campuses have created a special opportunity for librarians to engage faculty on scholarly communication and related intellectual property issues. There are many strategies we can take, both inside and outside the library, to make meaningful contributions to the momentum of these fast-moving and diverse open access initiatives.
