Academic libraries and publishers are experimenting with a range of novel approaches to supporting open access. We will provide and overview of two current models: subscribe to open (S20), and transformative agreements (TAs), and describe whether and how CUL is participating in either type of agreement. We will then open up the floor for a discussion of these types of agreements, and what benefits or drawbacks there might be to participation. We will provide a selective bibliography for participants who are motivated to learn more on their own, before or after this roundtable discussion.

Thirty Years of Open Access: Challenges and Opportunities for Building Structural Equity
October 27, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
View the Recording
30 years ago, new technology empowered researchers to share their work freely and openly, before peer review. The result? An incredible acceleration in the speed of science and an expectation for open access across disciplines. At this panel discussion, open access leaders from arXiv, AfricArXiv, and UCLA will discuss how this movement has grown and evolved. We'll look ahead the next 30 years and ask: what opportunities can we seize to ensure that the open access movement continues to equalize and democratize access to research? What challenges must we overcome to truly serve all researchers around the world?

Open Scholarship advocates for research to be transparent and openly available to all. In this workshop, we’ll give an overview of the Open Science movement and the general principles including access to publications and the underlying research process, FAIR data, and initiatives within scholarly communications that support “openness” of the research endeavor (preprints, registered reports, persistent identifiers, and community engagement platforms).

Knowledge is Power: Open Access, Equity, and Cornell's Land Grant Mission
October 29, 11:30am - 12:30pm
View the Recording
In the context of a university such as Cornell, open access is often viewed through the lens of academic scholarship. But it can be, and is, so much more. Many Cornell programs further Cornell's land grant mission by providing open access resources to the general public. A panel of representatives from some of these programs will discuss their work, its impacts, the importance of open access to their mission, and how they strive to make their respective fields more accessible and equitable through their work with open access projects.
