Announcements / Administrivia

Deep-Dive topic this month:

  • 1st half:
    Rachael and UCB and Mat at CDL to present about the Cambridge University Press transformative OA agreement announced in early April

CDL and Offsetting Task Force are thinking a lot about implementation now, and part of that implementation involves making sure that folks, particularly in the libraries, have a good understanding of what was agreed to (and why, and where we see this going).

  • 2nd half:
    UC San Diego to share their APC relief study and approach to "Recommending OA Publishing Opportunities to Faculty" -  due to time constraints, moved to next month's discussion 6/19/19
