Open Access (OA) resources are important to the information needs of today’s researchers. Over the years, the number of OA resources has grown substantially and will continue to do so. They are here to stay. This satellite will address how libraries and others are meeting the challenges of Open Access. It will attempt to answer how libraries are staffing and organizing operations to support OA. Another focus will be how libraries identify OA resources and market them to their communities. The satellite will also consider long term preservation of OA resources.
