Are they open yet? The impact of Open Access publishing on research libraries.
Presented at: UK Serials Group 28th Annual Conference and Exhibition, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.
All universities have a clear view as to how they must develop. In terms of research, electronic delivery is now embedded for researchers and access from the desktop is taken as a given. However, in terms of e-Learning, most students still do not feel that this mode of delivery is important. Open Access has the power fundamentally to change the way that Society functions. There are, indeed, two routes to Open Access and, in terms of institutional repositories, a considerable amount of development work is underway to embed this mode of delivery into patterns of academic research.
