Like other academic libraries, Emory University has been approached by a number of open access collection initiatives seeking funding. In this webinar, Lisa Macklin & Chris Palazzolo discuss that while all of these initiatives may have merit, how should Emory choose which to support, and why? Emory's Collection Management and the Scholarly Communications Office drafted an Open Access Collections policy which outlines basic policies and principles regarding the addition of open access content to the libraries collections. It defines the criteria for the library to provide financial support for emerging open access initiatives, as well as the process for the identification and selection of open access content for the collection. The speakers discuss the process of creating the policy, the questions they asked, and how this OA collections policy relates to other collection policies and library OA initiatives.
