The editors of Library Resources & Technical Services invite submissions on the topic of Open Access to celebrate the one year anniversary (OA-versery) of the journal moving to zero-embargo Open Access effective January 2023. Submissions may deal with any aspect of Open Access relevant within the scope of LRTS<https://journals.ala.org/index.php/lrts/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope> to publish research focused in the areas of collections, scholarly communications, acquisitions, and cataloging. Welcome topics include, but are not limited to:
