While governments, funders, universities, publishers, and scholars are increasingly adopting open policies and practices, how these are actually implemented is still in flux. As open becomes the default, all stakeholders must be intentional about designing these new, open systems to ensure that they are inclusive, equitable, and truly serve the needs of a diverse global community. This year’s ACRL/SPARC Forum at ALA Annual will invite panelists to address the challenges of building an open, inclusive, and equitable system for scholarly communication and to start a conversation about how we can all contribute to this important work.
