Librarians and faculty members now have the opportunity, through open access publishing, to work together to make faculty-produced scholarly content available to the entire academic community, not just to those scholars or institutions privileged enough to afford it. The University of South Florida Libraries have been working with bepress’ Digital Commons platform to create a substantial institutional repository that includes open access journals, conference proceedings, and data sets, among other materials. Publication of open access journals at USF officially began in 2008 with the launch of Numeracy from the National Numeracy Network. Library staff members are currently involved in a variety of activities, including negotiating memorandum of understandings, loading backfiles, registering DOIs with CrossRef, designing layout, doing final publication steps, and assisting with technical issues. In 2011, our institutional repository, Scholar Commons @ USF, went live, allowing the library to pull fragmented collections previously hosted on other platforms into a single system with improved discoverability. This session will discuss some of these efforts, what is involved, how we have retrained existing and new staff, and plans for future directions.
