As the Open Access movement ramps up in the humanities and social sciences, librarians need to be aware of the initiatives that are altering traditional scholarly publishing. Open access journals, monographs, presses, and more, are changing librarians' roles and the scholarly communication landscape. This panel will discuss the progress and impact of this important reform movement from the perspective of feminist librarians and other stakeholders. The WGSS Career Achievement award was presented to Kay Cassell and the panel followed. Co-sponsors in name only included: ANSS, EBSS, LPSS, ALCTS Scholarly Communication Interest Group.
Panelists: 

Speaker: Danielle Antoinette Hidalgo, Senior Fellow and Lecturer, Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, University of California, Santa Barbara
Speaker: Jennifer Laherty, Digital Publishing Librarian, IUScholarWorks, Indiana University, Bloomington
Speaker: Martin J. Brennan, Copyright Licensing Librarian, University of California, Los Angeles
Moderator: Sherri L. Barnes, Humanities Collection Coordinator, University of California, Santa Barbara
