OCLC partners with Dutch library consortia on Open Access Discovery research
OCLC Research is partnering with two Dutch library consortia—Universiteitbibliotheken en Nationale Bibliotheek (UKB) and Samenwerkingsverband Hogeschoolbibliotheken (SHB)—to investigate ways that libraries at universities and universities of applied sciences can improve the discoverability of scholarly, peer-reviewed open access (OA) publications for their communities.
Dutch academic libraries have been instrumental in the progress toward full open access to publications for all educational institutions and research domains in the Netherlands. The Open Access Discovery project is investigating how staff at Dutch universities and universities of applied sciences are integrating scholarly, peer-reviewed OA publications into their users’ discovery workflows, which will provide valuable evidence for other libraries wanting to make their own practices more effective
