*Call for Proposals and Papers*:

Open Access (OA) resources are important to the information needs of
today’s researchers. Over the years, the number of OA resources has grown
substantially and will continue to do so. They are here to stay. This
satellite will address how libraries and others are meeting the challenges
of Open Access. It will attempt to answer how libraries are staffing and
organizing operations to support OA. Another focus will be how libraries
identify OA resources and market them to their communities. The satellite
will also consider long term preservation of OA resources.

The program will be divided into three sessions titled "Long-term
preservation of Open Access Resources", "Marketing of Open Access
Resources," and "Discovery and Access of Open Access Resources”.

Librarians, information professionals, researchers, editors, and others are
invited to submit paper proposals addressing topics that relate with one of
the three session themes. Examples of such topics include (but are not
limited to):

Selecting and identifying OA resources

Discoverability of OA resources and datasets

Best practices for staffing and organizing OA operations

Promoting and Marketing OA resources

Partnerships between vendors and librarians for OA

Institutional Repositories and long term preservation solutions

Recruiting authors for OA publishing
