The ALCTS CRS Costs of Continuing Resources in Libraries Interest 
Group invites you to attend:

Open Access: Entitlement, Opportunity, or Peril?
Sunday, January 17, 2010, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
Boston Convention & Exhibition Center--Room 157C

Current tough economic times are forcing libraries to explore 
alternatives to conventional publishing access models. Many 
institutions (like MIT) have expressed strong support for Open 
Access while others (like University of Maryland) have proceeded 
more cautiously. Can all parties, including publishers, in the 
scholarly communication environment overcome the challenges from 
this alternative? Come and hear our panelists'perspectives on 
this issue and possible future trends, including those who had 
voted not to require OA.

Maryland (DRUM)
