Bill ID: 12-13-36
Name: Open Access Issues
Proposed: 04/03/2012
Sponsor: Joint Provost/Senate Open Access Task Force
Proposal: In April 2011, the University Senate and President Loh approved the University Library Council's (ULC) recommendations regarding, "Open Access Movement: A Proposal for Broad University Engagement in Study, Dialog, and Policy" (Senate Document Number 10-11-32). The ULC undertook a thorough review of open access issues to determine whether a campus policy should be formulated. The ULC concluded that the issue is complicated and evolving but the University must formally address how best to proceed regarding open access. The Council unanimously agreed that a joint task force should be established in order to guide the development of open access awareness, education, and policies.
