Libraries have led the charge to open up access to the scholarly literature. It’s time to turn that leadership into leverage to reduce costs, to save staff time, to improve library services, and to open up more even content and importantly infrastructure. The Open Access Button provides a suite of tools that provide the missing link necessary to translate gains toward Open Access into benefits for both budgets and patrons.
Wipe 5% off your ILL budget and delivery times, and discover a new way to advocate for Open Access, today. No complex installation, no training required.
Easily find Open Access articles from your Interlibrary loan pages or Libguides. No coding required. Power up your Open Access Libguide with a search bar showing patrons how to find alternatives to paywalled papers. Help your patrons discover E-Resources from thousands of credible sources, without leaving your website, learning how to use new ones, and being asked to pay.
Give us a list of articles as a spreadsheet, and we'll tell you which ones are Open Access.
We’ve heard from patrons and librarians that they want ILL to be faster, friendlier, cheaper and to advance Open Access. In response, we’re planning a next generation ILL form, codenamed InstantILL.
Here we highlight key information about free, open-source, nonprofit, and community - centric options for you and your campus.
In this handbook, written in collaboration with Tina Baich, Head of Resource Sharing & Delivery Services and Bibliographic & Metadata Service at IUPUI University Library and ex-Chair of ALA RUSA STARS, we hope to provide explainers on Open Access and resources for staff.
