The Effects of the Shift to Open on Research Libraries

IATUL SEMINAR 2019

Last year, OCLC surveyed libraries from 82 countries around the world on their open content efforts, investments, and opinions. The majority (72% of 705 respondents) were from research and university libraries. In this session, Titia presents data from the majority group through the lens of Lorcan Dempsey’s collection directions and contextualizes the findings within the broader trend toward more openness. She also shares questions raised by the findings and suggests areas for further exploration.
