Adopting and Implementing an Open Access Policy: The Library’s Role

The faculty at Allegheny College are on the verge of adopting an open access policy.  The library has been influential in its creation and will be integral in its implementation.  The first part of this presentation will introduce the College’s open access policy.  It will discuss the faculty’s concerns and final decision making process.  The library’s role in the formation of this policy will be analyzed.  The second part of this presentation will focus on implementation, especially the library’s institutional repository (IR).  Allegheny’s IR is a ‘dual-purpose system’.  It includes content available to all users (e.g., digitized manuscripts) and content available only to Allegheny affiliated users (e.g., classified administrative documents).  This approach has been beneficial, affirming the importance of IRs to the campus and scholarly communications.  Such duality, however, may pose new obstacles for carrying out Allegheny’s open access policy.  Additional implementation issues will be considered.
