Tomorrow's scholarly information management -- "Facility Policies for the electronic resource Open Access"

With today's burgeoning electronic environment, libraries face new challenges and roles in managing and disseminating scholarly information. While, on the one hand, the multiplication of electronic resources for obtaining scholarly information has greatly eased the research process, an increasingly serious problem is the sharp increase in the fees of the oligopolistic large publishing companies. In response to this situation, demand is high for repositories, facilities that would provide "open access," disseminating scholarly research results freely. This movement is forcing the major players to reconsider their roles and responsibilities, not only the leader for disseminating scholarly information, the academic community, but also libraries and publishing companies.

Concerned and interested individuals are invited to attend this symposium, "Facility Policies for the electronic resource 'Open Access'" on Tuesday, February 21.

Please join us in discussing and thinking of the most desirable way the dissemination and sharing of scholarly information can be accomplished.
