Should Libraries Support Open Access Funds?

Zuniga, Heidi; Hoffecker, Lilian

While library supported open access funds have helped the institution's faculty raise visibility of their articles by making them openly available, the authors of this poster urge libraries to critically examine their participation in OA fund programs. In our experience as OA fund coordinators at the Health Sciences Library of the University of Colorado (CU-HSL), we faced many practical challenges but additionally, as a number of scholars point out, it can lead to changes in the core mission of academic libraries.
