English abstract

SPARC has been active in engaging in open access advocacy on the local institutional, federal and international policy levels. SPARC’s strategy is focused on reducing barriers to access, sharing and use of scholarly information, and its highest priority is advancing the understanding and implementation of open access to research results. Heather Joseph provides an update on SPARC's recent advocacy activities as well as a snapshot of the current open access policy climate. Context of the Preconference: Members of the CLA Task Force on Open Access, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC), and the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) discussed the transition to Open Access and also offered a workshop. The presentations and workshop were given during the CLA Preconference on Open Access Meeting at the 1st International PKP Scholarly Publishing Conference in Vancouver, British-Columbia (Canada) from July 11-13, 2007.
