Over this last year, expanding access to research through digitization has become an increased priority as in-person access to collections was restricted. How have digitization priorities at the institutional, regional, and national level shifted and how can we work together to meet ambitious digitization goals? This session will also provide a brief overview of the links between digitization strategies and collective print initiatives to brainstorm future opportunities. In addition, a discussion regarding gaps in digitization infrastructure and capacity will be convened.
The Partnership for Open Access has been a successful and celebrated model for investing in open access journals since 2014 and has increased the availability of Canadian research worldwide. As we collectively build toward the next phases of this partnership, join us as members of the CRKN and Érudit teams provide an overview of the Partnership for Open Access and the impact made through the contributions of CRKN members, as well as how the partnership aligns with CRKN’s overall OA strategy.
