Science librarians are being asked by their faculty if the Libraries can pay for annual institutional memberships in Open Access organizations (BioMed Central, Public Library of Science) to reduce the author's fees needed to publish in OA journals. Can we please craft a policy statement for responding to our faculty, to define the Libraries' current role and to suggest where faculty should direct their request if not to the Libraries?
Preliminary monograph allocations -- can we please have an explanation of how the amounts for the budget centers for 09/10 were determined? What models or formulas or patterns were used?
