  6. 6. OSS for Open Scholarly Infrastructure OSS afford libraries (and the scholarly community) the opportunity to directly impact and shape their future evolution in ways that closely reflect their own concerns and agenda on open scholarship and open knowledge and in ways that are free from purely profit-driven commercial interests.
  7. 7. Benefits and Drawbacks
  8. 8. Standards and Interoperability
  9. 9. Loss of OSS
  10. 10. Open technologies for open knowledge In order to fully support and sustain the practice of open scholarship, libraries themselves must invest in the critical components of the open scholarly environment and ensure them to grow and prosper. For it is only in such an environment that libraries will be able to see knowledge be easily accessed, openly shared, accurately reproduced, and appropriately reused, just as they desire.
