OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit

About the event

This live Q&A session will discuss the OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit, a new, free resource. The toolkit aims to help authors better understand open access (OA) for books, to increase trust in OA book publishing, to provide reliable and easy-to-find answers to questions from authors, and to provide guidance in the process of publishing an OA book. The toolkit was developed in a series of workshops for authors, hosted by the universities of Oxford, Glasgow and Utrecht, in collaboration with Springer Nature and OAPEN. The Q&A session will start with a short presentation about the toolkit and a brief demo, before opening up to a live discussion where panellists will take questions from attendees.

  • Lucy Barnes, Editor, Open Book Publishers
  • Eelco Ferwerda, Director, OAPEN
  • Ros Pyne, Director, Open Access Books and Book Policies, Springer Nature
  • Graham Stone, Senior Programme Manager – open access monographs, Jisc

16/10 - Libraries & Campus

Libraries Today: Services, Safety and Novelty

About the event

The reality of the worldwide virus threat has challenged academic libraries to respond with service delivery that encompasses attention to safety protocols and novel delivery methods. This session represents a view of academic libraries worldwide and the services they are rendering to faculty and students under a variety of conditions, including in person, remote, and hybrid learning environments. While the pandemic situation is temporary, the lessons learned from it and skills attained because of it, will likely have a lasting legacy for academic librarians. Two of our experienced members of the scholarly community will review what has happened to academic libraries and how they have acted to stay relevant and central to their academic missions.

  • Robert W. Boissy, Director of Account Development, Springer Nature
  • Holger Barth, Senior Account Development Manager, Springer Nature
