As both agencies and institutions prepare for the implementation of the 2022 OSTP Memo, there are a variety of ways libraries can support this work—both on campus and in advocacy to ensure agency plans lead to strong policies. Join the next OpenCon Library Community Call on Tuesday, March 14th, at 12pm ET / 9am PT to discuss how libraries are preparing for the 2022 memo to take effect, what additional types of support could help in this preparation, and the important role libraries can play in advocacy around implementation. Katie Steen-James, SPARC’s Manager of Public Policy & Advocacy, will join the discussion and walk through the first opportunity for libraries to help shape the implementation of the memo in the NIH’s recently announced Request for Information on their plan to implement the 2022 memo.
Note: This call is open to those working in libraries and academic institutions rather than vendors, who are asked to respect the purpose of these calls for candid discussion.
