Conference Proceeding
"Implementing open access is a tough job" [Armbruster, 2010] and it is getting tougher with the open agenda extending beyond that of research publications to include not only research data, but a more open agenda to scholarship and information generally. Open Scholarship, open innovation, open education, open government and open science all refer to freeing up access to, and sharing of information. Governments in the western world are adopting more open positions to government information and data. In Australia, the Australian National Data Service (ANDS) is one of several federally funded national agencies to facilitate the re-use of outputs from federally funded research. Libraries need to engage with this wider agenda. There is an increasing body of research about the impact of open access, as well as a number of tools developed by organisations such as the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), Enabling Open Scholarship (EOS), and Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), and others that can assist institutions to progress the open access agenda at an institutional level. Even with this growing body of supporting information, and a commitment to engaging with the open access movement, the extent to which libraries and institutions have implemented open access strategies varies considerably within countries and across the world.
