Strand 2: Open Access books and the supply chain
Open Access Monographs and the supply chain. The current supply
chain is set up around publishers selling monographs and edited
collections on one side and libraries and individual users purchasing
on the other. In a move to Open Access, regardless of the business
model, there will be changes to workflows, processes and new steps
will be introduced. This strand will introduce work taking place in
the area of metadata, quality assurance and standards to support
the flow of OA monographs into the supply chain and the discovery
of OA monographs by librarians and end users. Participants will also
be invited to suggest other elements that will need to be explored
and to join a discussion on how libraries wish to discover, catalogue
and handle OA monographs and how institutions might deal with
monographs and edited collections within their repositories.

Strand 3: How can funders and policy makers support

How can funders and policy makers support the transition to OA
monographs? This strand is for policy makers and funders to look
at where collaboration will help to support a robust research
environment. The session will bring together policy makers and
research funders that are interested or actively involved in
supporting Open Access for monographs, through specific
experiments, projects or funding schemes.
