invites you to attend:

Open Access: Entitlement, Opportunity, or Peril?
Sunday, January 17, 2010, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Boston Convention & Exhibition Center--Room 157C

Current tough economic times are forcing libraries to explore
alternatives to conventional publishing access models. Many institutions (like MIT)
have expressed strong support for Open Access while others (like
University of Maryland) have proceeded more cautiously. Can all
parties, including publishers, in the scholarly communication
environment overcome the challenges from this alternative? Come and hear
our panelists'perspectives on this issue and possible future trends, including those
who had voted not to require OA.

Terry Owen, Coordinator for the Digital Repository at the University of Maryland (DRUM)
Ellen Finnie Duranceau, Scholarly Publishing & Licensing Consultant at MIT
Alex Crhstoforou, Membership Accounts Manager, BioMed Central

Please join us for a lively discussion!

For more information, please contact Lai-Ying Hsiung (chair,
lhsiung@ucsc.edu) or Heather Staines (vice-chair,
Heather.Staines@springer.com) of the Costs of Continuing Resources in
Libraries Interest Group.
