  14. 14. Pierre Mounier Some statements from librarians “Because we have shrinking budgets and paid resources are more and more expensive, we must justify the money we spend, so we are driven to focus more and more on what we pay.” “Open access resources, right now are not very up-to-date in our tool (MetaLib). We concentrated our forces on paid resources because we have to justify the money (we spend)” “We have stats on that (OA), but we don’t use them. We have to deal with paid databases at first ! It’s a huge work for us to answer to enquiries. The logic is return on investment because theses resources are extremely expensive. We have to justify subscriptions to the university, the scientific committee and the government.” Emma Bester study : Usages of open access resources in Research libraries. A case study on Revues.orgPKP scholarship publishing conference 2011 The problem behind the problem
  15. 15. A triple disaster• For OA publishers : they can’t be fully supported by libraries• For readers : they are left alone to find open access resources (desintermediation scenario)• For libraries : they can’t participate fully the new open access ecosystem
