Campus Open-Access Policy Implementation Models and Implications for IR Services

"As Shannon Kipphut-Smith notes in her summary of Rice University’s implementation experience, libraries faced with the need to set up brand-new procedures find themselves in a “nuanced” environment without a roadmap. Their library, like others implementing policies, “had never before conducted activities similar to the implementation of the OA policy,” so they found that “practically every activity has been experimental.”3 Here, in attempt to build that needed roadmap, we provide a snapshot of the openaccess policy implementation landscape by evaluating data from a survey of Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI) and characterizing each library’s OA policy implementation models for its campus. We reflect on implications for services associated with campus institutional repositories (IRs) in 2 meeting implementation needs, identifying relevant IR services that have emerged in relation to, and in support of, each of the implementation models...."
