Statement of Support for Open Access

The Boise State University Albertsons Library promotes and facilitates access to information. The Library Faculty adopted the 2016 Association of College & Research Libraries’ (ACRL) statement in support of Open Access, which “encourages academic librarians to publish in open access journals.” ACRL “…further encourages academic librarians to make other forms of scholarship, such as monographs, presentations, grey literature, and data, openly accessible.” Albertsons Library advocates for the open dissemination of library and information sciences scholarship, and fully supports Open Access for publishing as it allows for greater exposure, discovery, and retention of author rights.

Albertsons Library encourages other departments to consider a similar statement. Contact your library liaison if you would like any assistance or have any questions.
