Open Access in Libraries
This paper discusses the general background and basic concepts of open access, as well as its current developments. The paper also offers a constructive critique on the pros and cons of open access from the perspectives of libraries, publishers, scholars, and authors. Despite the challenges raised against open access, open access has become a significant movement that libraries cannot be ignored. Libraries need to address both advocacy issues as well as objections in order to assess the contributions of open access to the institutions.
