This session will be dedicated to reviewing the methodology and the results of the LYRASIS 2020 Open Content Survey, concluded in March 2020. For the purposes of the survey, “open content” is defined as information that can be read/accessed without any barriers, be they paywalls or institutional logins. The webinar will discuss the three sections of the survey covering three different types of open content: open access scholarship, open data, and open educational resources.
By the end of this class, students will be able to:
Understand the current major trends surrounding open content for libraries for public libraries, community college libraries and academic libraries within the United States.
