    4th Library Faculty Green OA Mandate; Planet's 81st: Gustavus
    Adolpus College

      Gustavus Adolpus College Library Faculty 
      Open Access Pledge

      The Gustavus library faculty believes that open access to
      scholarship is critical for scholarly communication and
      for the future of libraries. For that reason we pledge to
      make our own research freely available whenever possible
      by seeking publishers that have either adopted open
      access policies,publish contents online without
      restriction, and/or allow authors to self-archive their
      publications on the web. We pledge to link to and/or
      self-archive our publications to make them freely

      Librarians may submit their work to a publication that
      does not follow open access principles and will not allow
      self archiving only if it is clearly the best or only
      option for publication; however, librarians will actively
      seek out publishers that allow them to make their
      research available freely online and, when necessary,
      will negotiate with publishers to improve publication

      Adopted by the library faculty on May 14, 2009
