The current economic model of scholarly publishing benefits publishers at our expense. Colleges and universities provide the content and then buy it back. Subscription rates increase annually while library budgets remain stagnant or decline, creating a structural deficit. This session will provide an overview of the unsustainability of the current model and of the open access movement that can help address it. This session is a call to action and the beginning of a campus conversation to learn about steps we can take individually, within our departments, as a campus, and in our professions to reclaim control over scholarly publishing.
