The purpose of this presentation is to place LIBER’s work on the DART-Europe portal (at http://www.dart-europe.eu/) for Open Access research theses in the context of global developments in Open Access. LIBER (at http://www.libereurope.eu/) is the principal European library organisation for research libraries.

The presentation examines the work of John Houghton on the economics of Open Access, looks at critiques of that work, and comes to a view on how this debate should be taken forward in order to maximise visibility to research output.

That emphasis on visibility is one of the main concerns of the DART-Europe portal, which currently provides a central access point to 175,000 research theses in Open Access from nearly 300 European Universities.`

Europeana Libraries, currently under negotiation with the EU, aims to deliver a sustainable pan-European library aggregator for research libraries to feed material into Europeana.

LERU (League of European Research Libraries) at http://www.leru.org/index.php/public/home/ has instigated a piece of work to look at what position, if any, LERU member Universities should take on Open Access. A draft policy statement, endorsing Open Access, is being considered by LERU Rectors in November 2010 with a view to future work.

Through all this work, LIBER is working with European agencies and Universities to create modern, innovative services to support the European researcher.
