You are warmly invited to SPARC Europe Open Session in conjunction with the Pre-LIBER conference in Munich, Germany, the 25th of June at 2.30pm-5.30pm.
Venue: Hilton Park Hotel Am Tucherpark 7, 80538.
We will discuss how libraries can make open access work now that open access is moving into the mainstream. Can libraries/universities reallocate funds from the big deals to the support of open access publishing? Speakers for this topic are:
Prof. Björn Brembs, Universität Regensburg, Germany
Prof. Dr. Susanne Weigelin-Schwiedrzik, Pro Vice Chancellor, University of Vienna, Austria
Anna Lundén, Coordinator, the Swedish Library Consortium, BIBSAM, National Library of Sweden
Berndt Dugall, Library Director, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt am Main, Germany
There will also be an informal discussion between Dr Celina Ramjoué, European Commission and Dr Alma Swan, SPARC Europe’s Director for Advocacy, on how organisations are devoting considerable resources to working for a good open access policy for the EU. How far have we come and what is the nature of progress?
Please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to participate in the session.
