- UCSB - UCSB’s reorg planning is progressing slowly. Sherri is advocating for a collection strategist to be dedicated to data analysis related to the UCPMS/OA Policy compliance; the new Open Access Fund that is in the works; and the savings from the transition to OA/flipped journals. The new OA Fund will not support monographs. UCSB's OA monograph dollars are going toward the punctum books+UCSB Library Partnership. Punctum will have a booth at ACRL, April 10-13. If attending, visit us at booth 764. The Academic Senate endorsed OA2020. Press releases etc. are forthcoming. On April 4 the Library is hosting a Sprint to advance production on punctum desired functions in Editoria, an open source book publishing tool for streamlining production. Editoria is a project of the Coko Foundation, in partnership with UC Press and the CDL. The Library finished work on the punctum catalog upgrade, where MARC, KBART, and ONYX records of punctum's catalog, including chapters, have been created. The catalog will be hosted and preserved through OAPEN and Portico. Work is to begin this spring on the assessment of the backend of punctum's website. Can campuses that list OA monograph publishing options for authors on their website include punctum books? There are no author APCs, but authors from institutions with OA funds will be asked to apply to the fund for support. There is no required amount. Punctum covers the cost of publishing through print sales, individual monthly subscriptions, donations, translation rights, graduated OA downloads, voluntary APCs, limited internships, and the sweat equity of the co-directors. We are working toward a library membership program. Campuses that have faculty members that have published punctum books or contributed to one of their edited volumes include UCLA, UCD, UCB, UCSC, UCR, UCI, and UCSB.
