Atlantic Provinces Library Association supports OA publishing!

I am pleased to report that the Atlantic Provinces Library Association passed the following motions at their Ordinary General Meeting during the CLA/APLA/NLLA National Conference held in St. John’s NL May 23-28, 2007:

Motion: It is moved that APLA support open access publishing, and begin with Volume 71 of the APLA bulletin, to be open access.

Motion: It is moved that APLA adopt a creative commons copyright statement with the first online issue, to replace the current copyright statement.

Both were passed unanimously.

I suppose this makes APLA the second library association in Canada to fully support open access publishing.

Thanks to Jennifer Richard, and kudos to APLA!
