Almost Halfway There: An Analysis of the Open Access Behaviors of Academic Librarians
Mercer, Holly
College & Research Libraries, v72 n5 p443-453 Sep 2011
Academic librarians are increasingly expected to advocate for scholarly communications reforms such as open access to scholarly publications, yet librarians do not always practice what they preach. Previous research examined librarian attitudes toward open access, whereas this article presents results of a study of open access publishing and self-archiving behaviors of academic librarians. Following an analysis of open access to library and information science literature in 2008, several strategies to encourage academic librarians to continue to embrace open access behaviors are discussed.
