Opening access to scholarly research Colenbrander, Hilde; Morrison, Heather; Waller, Andrew


This presentation provides a basic description of open access and a very brief description of the crisis in scholarly communications which created the need for expanded access. Open access initiatives in western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta) are discussed, including institutional repository developments, the Public Knowledge Project's Open Journal Systems, and digitization projects of academic, public, and special libraries.
