C&RL moves to full open access

Mar 22, 2011

Good news for academic librarians!  College & Research Libraries will soon become fully open access.  This leading research journal already makes back issues available on the web, but new content from the last six months is embargoed.  That will change with the May 2011 issue.  The Association of College & Research Libraries, publisher of C&RL, has loudly championed open access to scholarship, and now the association is putting its values into practice, despite the potential for loss of subscription income.   Read more about this decision in editor Joseph Branin's editorial, http://crl.acrl.org/content/72/2/108.full.pdf+html.  Check out past issues of C&RL at their website, http://crl.acrl.org/.
