What Reviewers Are Saying
Librarians--particularly those with scholarly communications in their title or responsibilities-- will benefit from this entire volume but certain chapters resonate with a broader audience. This is especially true of chapters in the advocacy section.... The chapters in the publisher section include case studies of two publisher models in academic institutions are useful, but the chapters on how open access applies to traditional library services are especially insightful.... Open Access and the Future of Scholarly Communication: Policy and Infrastructure documents how far the movement has come and various directions libraries can take to move forward.
