The Academic Library Association of Ohio (ALAO) Collection Management Interest Group (CMIG) is offering a virtual meeting that will focus on transformative deals and related open access topics. There will be 3 presentations followed by Q&A and an open discussion.
The group will explore participation in transformative deals, the differences between "read & publish” vs “publish & read", the influence of open access on various types of organizations, and the future progression of these efforts. Various perspectives and examples will be offered as the related terminology is defined and issues explored.
Joining us as presenters are:
