Session one:
University Libraries, Universities and Open Access University libraries have played a major role in advocating for open access. Now open access is moving into the mainstream. How can libraries make open access work? How can universities support the shift to open access? How can universities support the transition to open access by changing the reward systems? Can libraries/universities reallocate funds from the big deals to the support of open access publishing? These are the issues and questions this session will address.

 

Speakers:

  • Prof. Björn Brembs, Universität Regensburg, Germany
  • Prof. Dr. Susanne Weigelin-Schwiedrzik, Pro Vice Chancellor, University of Vienna, Austria
  • Anna Lundén, Coordinator, the Swedish Library Consortium, BIBSAM, National Library of Sweden
  • Berndt Dugall, Library Director, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

 

Break: wine and nibbles

 

Session two:
Open Access in Europe. SPARC Europe and other organisations are devoting considerable resources to working for a good open access policy for the EU. How far have we come and what is the nature of progress?

  • Dr Celina Ramjoué, European Commission and
  • Dr Alma Swan, SPARC Europe’s Director for Advocacy
