A Revised ACRL Policy Statement on Open Access to Scholarship by Academic Librarians Approved

From ACRL Insider:

The ACRL Board of Directors approved a revision of the ACRL Policy Statement on Open Access to Scholarship by Academic Librarians at its April 2019 virtual meeting. Written by ACRL’s Research and Scholarly Environment Committee (ReSEC), the revision addresses the sense of the “across the lifecycle” nature of scholarly communication interest in open access.

The board also approved Guidelines for Standardized Holdings Counts and Measures for Archival Repositories and Special Collections Libraries at the April 2019 meeting.
