Jennifer Thomson, assistant professor of History at Bucknell University, interviews Jill Hallam-Miller, Dan Heuer, and Tammy Troup, Bucknell librarians, Scholarly Communications committee members, and Open Access advocates. The group contrasts the current closed model of scholarly publishing with the aims of Open Access. The discussion revolves around specific cases, describes the use of Open Educational Resources on college campuses, and includes comments about the recent decision by the University of California library to boycott Elsevier. The conversation concludes with a discussion about Open Access as a value at Bucknell University.
