Description

In tandem with increasing support for open access worldwide, academic libraries of all sizes have expanded their support of public dissemination of research beyond their walls. Through the establishment of institutional repositories, libraries are openly sharing articles, presentations, dissertations, media, and data files published elsewhere. In a related — but in some ways strikingly different — role, libraries are acting as publishers of new content through journals, monographs, and new media. Presenters will discuss questions and opportunities emerging from this dual role many libraries now fill, and describe strategies employed at their institutions to meet these challenges.
