Open Access (OA) is part of a global discussion about Open Scholarship and Open Knowledge.1 As public funding for Higher Education is reduced, university budgets are under enormous pressure and libraries are even more challenged in supporting their researchers. OA, however, is a new way in which research can be supported and research outputs made more generally available.2 If research outputs are disseminated in OA, they are immediately available, subject to any publisher embargoes, and free to the user, although their production does need to be balanced by a sustainable business model.
