Presenting open access resources alongside licensed content provides many benefits to both you and your patrons. However, the tools and collection development practices designed to work with traditionally acquired materials often pose challenges for freely available resources. This session will address managing open content library collections and offer an assessment of current delivery models and opportunities for upgrading delivery in the future, including:

• How to integrate open content into collection development strategies;
• How to improve the data around open content;
• How MARC record changes will impact the way users find and access open content; and
• How library service providers are improving the open access user experience.
You will gain valuable, up-to-date knowledge of today’s open access landscape, and walk away with a checklist of best practices for integrating open access content into your collection development strategies; configuring metadata to maximize visibility of open access content and for partnering with publishers; and library service providers on solutions that deliver benefits to you and your users.
