  • 3. Transformational times
    • “ On the other hand,
    • the economic situation could be favourable
    • to the further development of open access publishing in Canada.”
  • 4. Transformational times
    • “ Open Access publication mandates
    • may well be adopted by the funding councils…
    • Data preservation will also likely be more widely mandated .
    • Systematic enforcement of the mandates will depend on the development of appropriate repositories, whether disciplinary or institutional .”
  • 5. Open Access (OA) & libraries
    • open access
    • has permanently changed
    • the field of scholarly communication
  • 6. OA & libraries
    • Open access
    • has changed
    • the profile of academic and research libraries
    • – more and more they have become partners
    • in research,
    • data-curation
    • and education,
    • ensuring the quality of digital resources is maintained, and openly sharing these resources with their users
  • 7. OA & libraries
    • Academic and research libraries
    • are setting up and maintaining
    • open access institutional or subject repositories,
    • becoming partners
    • in open access publishing,
    • and helping to create
    • open educational resources
  • 8. OA & libraries
    • Academic and research libraries
    • are also developing
    • advanced and enhanced metrics
    • – a new range of standardized indicators based on reader (rather than author-facing) metrics
    • and much more still remains to be explored
  • 9. Open data
    • Amount of scientific data
    • is growing every year
    • Access, use and curation
    • of large data sets
    • are becoming increasingly important.
    • Ensuring open access to the data
    • behind the research literature
    • will help to build a scholarly communication system that supports the needs of researchers
  • 10. Open data
    • As Open Data moves
    • to the forefront of scholarly communication,
    • librarians, administrators, and researchers
    • have to consider new access policies
    • for data and data curation issues
  • 11. Open data
    • Raising awareness and understanding
    • of data issues amongst researchers,
    • providing archiving
    • and preservation services for datasets,
    • and developing a new professional strand of practice – data librarianship are key challenges for the library and information science community
  • 12. OER
    • The Cape Town Open Education Declaration
    • defines open educational resources (OER)
    • as "openly licensed course materials, lesson plans, textbooks, games, software and other materials that support teaching and learning."
    • It goes on to state that these resources should be "... licensed to facilitate use, revision, translation, improvement and sharing by anyone."
  • 13. OER
    • OER have the potential
    • to transform the way scholarship is conducted and they are a logical extension
    • of what the library community supports in the open access movement
    • Libraries have a role to play in the open education by encouraging the creation and use of open materials
  • 14. Changing landscape
    • In this changing environment
    • for scholarly communication
    • academic and research libraries
    • need to be
    • agile,
    • creative,
    • risk-taking
    • and innovative
    • in order to respond to the needs
    • of a new generation of faculty and students
  • 15. Changing landscape
    • Science is dynamic
    • and collaborative
    • and it is important
    • to sustain the communication processes,
    • rather than to simply archive research results
    • in the form of a single journal article
  • 16. Changing landscape
    • Librarians and information specialists
    • need to be involved in the early planning
    • and data-modelling phases
    • of research
    • in order to accelerate learning
    • and discovery,
    • and libraries will need
    • to become core collaborators on campus,
    • using technology
    • to advance scholarly communication
    • and enable a climate of openness
