"As a long-standing advocate for Open Science, LIBER fully welcomes Plan S: an ambitious new initiative from national public research funders and the European Commission to make full and immediate Open Access to research publications a reality. [...]
Many libraries are already actively working in these areas, however PlanS adds extra impetus to the need for libraries to fully back Open Access and Open Science. Notably, policies and strategies will need to be reassessed with an emphasis on transparency. LIBER is ready to help its libraries with this transition to a world where policies, tools and infrastructures universally support the growth and sharing of knowledge."
