The university has a long-standing and deep commitment to open access that is diffused throughout the culture, and
manifested in many positions and individuals. Leadership in these areas comes from the provost, vice president for
research, the director of libraries, and key faculty committees, including the faculty committee on the library system, and
the open access working group. The Libraries’ program manager in scholarly publishing & licensing is carrying out the
vision of a much broader agenda, related to the university’s mission.
