While collection development policies and processes at University of South Carolina Libraries have evolved through the decades, librarians recently discovered a large, unaddressed gap in content. Open access publications have increased in availability over the past several years but discovery in our library systems remained invisible. Join UofSC librarians as we discuss our quest to create a robust collection development policy for open access materials. We’ll cover everything from our early interactions with stakeholders in acquisitions and cataloging to our outreach discussions with liaison librarians. We’ll also discuss the creation of an early-stage policy, our multi-phase pilot, including our ghastly missteps, and our revised, final(ish) open access collection development policy. Finally, we’ll share our policy assessment and will offer tips, tricks, and just a little open access magic for other librarians seeking to develop a policy of their own.
