Two suggestions:

(1) A reminder that the "Patchwork Mandate" is a reasonable,
incremental response for open access advocates at a sprawling
institution like Cornell.

See; see also

(2) At least on American campuses, faculty are much more likely
to support a mandate if they vote to impose it upon themselves
rather than have it imposed by an administrator. Look for a
faculty champion who would be willing to take on this cause.
