And once you have made that decision, how do you justify supporting open content to your administration? This session will provide valuable tips for how to evaluate and advocate for financially supporting open content initiatives, as well as an overview of which initiatives are currently being offered through LYRASIS. Handouts will be distributed during this session as a reference guide for future decision making.
