What we did at our last library faculty meeting

Which I missed, because I was off campus that day.

But I totally, 100% supported this action from afar — we adopted an open access mandate!

Appropriately, it lives in the institutional repository.

Comment from Peter Suber at Open Access News.

More comments from my colleague Terry Reese.

This was made a little more meaningful to me because just in these last two weeks I’ve had a weird flurry of interest from different people/groups in this paper, which my co-author and I archived in the IR last year.  Pointing these people to the archived copy wasn’t just convenient – it actually did provide me with all of these golden opportunities to  talk to people (who might themselves be in a position to assert authors’ rights someday) about open access and author’s rights in a very organic way.
