Plans are in full swing for the Choosing Pathways to Open Access or CP2OA18 happening on the UC Berkeley campus on October 16-17, 2018. #cp2oa18 @UCB_ScholComm
Sponsored by the UC Libraries, librarians from several of the UC campuses and several California Digital Library (CDL) staff are knee-deep in planning efforts to engage library decision-makers across the United States.
CP2OA18 is a “free two-day working forum for North American library or consortium leaders and key academic stakeholders centered on action-focused deliberations about redirecting subscription and other funds toward sustainable open access publishing.”
We’ve created a CP2OA18 reading list at the UC San Diego Library, starting with the Choosing Pathways Toolkit in addition to incorporating suggested resources and citations gathered from the various reports.The CP2OA working group will distribute preparation materials in coming months.
