Re: IFLA Support Open Access

Note that the IFLA document defines Open Access differently (more
generically) from the OA definitions in today's STM dialogues.  IFLA's
open access has as it goal the provision of information to the broadest
possible numbers of libraries and readers.  It is understood that such
access may involve payment of a fee or subscription for the information.  

Sincerely, Ann Okerson (took part in various committee discussions about
the document, including definitions)
