|Open content activities in libraries: same direction, different trajectories||4.65 MB|
This report is the culmination of efforts from across the OCLC membership to answer the question raised at a Global Council (GC) meeting: “What is the status of open access and open content in libraries across the globe?”
The underlying open content survey was conducted in 2018-2019 by the OCLC Global Council, in partnership with staff from OCLC Research. The survey’s broad definition of library open content activities and global scope offers a new perspective on open content activities within the library community as it uncovers and highlights the maturity and versatility of these activities.
This report synthesises survey findings on current and future planned open content activities and areas of investment for a large cohort of research and university libraries.
