Join Library Journal Editor-in-Chief Meredith Schwartz for an open access (OA) panel with Hilary Prisbylla Director of CLEVNET, Kimberly Mashek, Technical Services Librarian at Waterloo Public Library, and Kelvin Watson, Executive Director of the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District, as they cover all things open access for public libraries! Scholarly journals and other publications are increasingly being published as open access, allowing libraries everywhere to connect patrons with free access to reliable, high-quality research. Our panel of OA proponents will review the results of the recent Library Journal survey and sharing methods and strategies to help your community use and benefit from OA materials. 

Get ready to: 
•    Review the latest research on the use of OA content in libraries 
•    Share results of the Library Journal survey on OA use in public libraries 
•    Learn new OA collection management strategies that libraries are implementing today
