We are excited to kick off a new year of OpenCon Librarian Community calls – especially a year that is positioned to see much change and excitement in the scholarly communications and open space. This month’s theme will focus on the year ahead, starting with a deep-dive into Plan S provided by Ashley Farley from the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation. Then we will have time for an open discussion on similar topics such as: transformative journals, pricing transparency, GetFTR, or anything else that is “need to know” for the new year.
This call brings together all librarians working with, or learning about, all things Open--and gives folks an opportunity to connect with each other to better their work and librarianship.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
