The program includes two presentations:

Presentation One: Open Access Discoverability and Advocacy: A Community College Perspective

Presented by:
Louise Feldman, Reference and OER Librarian, Delaware County Community College
Andrea Rodgers, Assistant Professor & Reference Librarian, Delaware County Community College.

Since 2020, the Electronic Resources and OER Librarians at Delaware County Community College (DCCC) have worked together on a variety of projects to increase visibility and discovery of open access content and OERs to their faculty, staff, and students. Initiatives include subscribing to EBSCO's Faculty Select platform and their inclusion in DCCC Library Services' discovery system, Summon. Open access resource development efforts include compiling subject specific lists of open access content and establishing selection criteria for adoption of these resources. To grow the College faculty awareness of OERs, DCCC librarians actively explore grant opportunities and offer workshops. This presentation focuses on community college librarians' efforts in OER and open access discoverability and advocacy at an institution in the early stages of their adoption and may be of interest to academic librarians supporting and advocating for OER on their campus.

Presentation Two: Managing Open Access Resources at the University of California Libraries

Presented by:
Cynthia Johnson, Head of Reference and the Grunigen Medical Library, University of California, Irvine
Tamara Pilko, Electronic Resources Librarian, University of California, Santa Cruz
Erica Zhang, Metadata Librarian for Open Access, University of California, Los Angeles

The University of California libraries recently migrated from 10 separate library systems to a shared Alma/Primo VE library services platform in July 2021. With this huge shift in infrastructure, a UC-wide task force was established to determine how best to manage Open Access Electronic Resources in this new consortial system. The Open Access Resource Management Task Force is nearing the end of 2 phases, and we will share our work in defining what open access means to us, what principles will guide our ongoing activity around OA, what tasks are outstanding, and what skillsets are needed for a successful OA project team beyond this initial task force.

IG Week recordings will be available the second week in March.

Hope you can join us at the session,
