Beyond the APC: Metadata Support for OA Discovery and Access
Wed 10/26/2022 • 10AM - 11AM PDT
Long before Google, Article Processing Charges (APCs) and Transformative Agreements, libraries have been hard at work helping users to find the information resources they need. A part of the magic that makes it possible to find just what you're looking for happens behind the scenes at the hands of cataloging and metadata librarians.
Join UCLA Library for Open Access Week 2022 as we pull back the curtain to reveal what we're doing to provide sustainable support for open access (OA). Hear about the motivations and sophisticated skills and tools that are being deployed by UCLA to make open access resources easier to find. Learn how this unsung strategy seeks to empower libraries by adapting expertise in our wheelhouse for a sustainable approach to open access support. For OA Week, we go far beyond the APC.
