What are the challenges and opportunities for open access collection development?

The recently published OA in the Open white paper<https://osf.io/preprints/lissa/g972d>, explores the idea of collective action supporting open access collection development funding. Funded by an IMLS grant<https://www.imls.gov/grants/awarded/lg-73-18-0226-18>, the white paper summarizes key findings from focus groups and recommends potential next steps for building an OA collection development system and culture and that motivates the community toward collective action.

In response to one of the key challenges expressed in the focus groups - deciding which open access resources to fund - project leaders are exploring what it would take to develop and implement an evaluation instrument. Join us at the 2019 DLF Forum<https://dlfforum2019.sched.com/event/S2kS/oa-in-the-open> to hear more about the project and learn about opportunities to get involved in possible future efforts.
