National licence negotiations advancing the OA transitions: a view from Sweden
Lundén, Anna
The National Library of Sweden (NLS) has worked with advancing open access (OA) to scholarly output since 2006. In 2017 it received an appropriation directive from the Government to act as a national coordinating body in the work towards a transition to immediate OA of publicly funded research output by 2026. As a consequence, the NLS includes this objective in its vision for 2025 to lead the work moving from subscription-based to immediate openly accessible research publications. As part of this objective the Bibsam Consortium therefore negotiates journal license agreements including OA components in order to help achieve a rapid and sustainable transition to OA. Recognizing our leverage in these negotiation has also meant that stepping away from the negotiation table is an option, and the case of the Swedish Elsevier cancellation will be further presented. In order to reach the target set by the Swedish Government, there is a strong need for institutional reallocation of funds. The main stakeholders in Sweden must not lose momentum in this process but make a concerted push forward in negotiations with publishers to achieve a sustainable scholarly publishing system in unison with its international counterparts.

Towards Open Science: challenges and way forward for European universities
Finance, Jean-Pierre
Professor Jean-Pierre Finance, Chair of the EUA Science2.0/Open Science Expert Group, will explain EUA approach towards Open Science by bringing together first-hand information and experience from three main areas: 1) Open Access policies (universities through EUA’s survey on Open Science - data from 500 universities; research councils – through Plan S); 2) financial aspects, through its survey on "Big Deals" (data from 31 National Consortia) and Publish&Read Project; 3) research assessment for research careers (briefing). EUA implements its Roadmaps on Open Access (2016) and on Research Assessment (2018) in close collaboration with its ad-hoc groups: Expert Group on Science 2.0/Open Science, the High-Level Group on Big Deals and the Negotiators Group. EUA develops strategic positions, surveys and workshops which are becoming a reference for universities and in the framework of the EC Open Science Policy Platform (OSPP).

Open Access and Plan S for Researchers
O'Neill, Gareth
A coalition of national research funders in Europe has recently set funding criteria that all research publications should be issued in full and immediate Open Access. This talk will explore the details of this 'Plan S' and how researchers can comply with Plan S and actively get involved in Open Access.

Measuring the value of open access ETDs in the Algerian digital repositories: an evaluative study
Mettai, Khaled ; Boumarafi, Behdja
Over the past years, grey literature in general and ETDs in particular has been growing more and more digitally. Algeria ranked first among Arab countries with 15 digital repositories. Electronic Digital Theses (EDTs) represent a huge percentage of the repositories content. There are 14 repositories in which their content policies collect theses and dissertations as well as other types of documents such as articles, reports, etc. The usage of ETDs by undergraduates has been exponentially increased. The study aims to highlight and evaluate the tools for measuring the usage of ETDs in the digital repositories and their availability, the extent of using ETDs by users and evaluation methodology.

From interlending to resource sharing between scholars?: an analysis of recent developments
Saarti, Jarmo ; Tuominen, Kimmo
Even though resource sharing between scholars is evolving rapidly, we still have paper-based interlibrary lending (ILL) procedures in use. However, the current business model of acquiring toll-access journals and e-books does not seem to fit very well with traditional ILL practices. In addition, the new models of peer-to-peer resource sharing between academics seem to be much more effective than ILL. Scholars arrange access to the needed publications by using legal (buying, exchanging) and illegal means (Sci-Hub, etc.) for accessing the publications they need. Furthermore, the demands for open access (OA) have increased, voiced not only by librarians and science funders but also by politicians. This development might change the scholarly publication ecosystem, even though older publications are still likely to remain closed. In the present paper, we contrast the ILL and usage statistics of Finnish university libraries with the use of ResearchGate, a popular academic social network, which we treat as an example of a peer-to-peer sharing service. Based on the data, we attempt to understand how resource sharing, on the one hand formally between institutions, and on the other hand informally between scholars, will develop in the digital and increasingly open future.

Engineering a powerfully simple interlibrary loan experience with InstantILL
Paxton, Mike ; Maixner, Gary ; McArthur, Joseph ; Baich, Tina
IUPUI University Library (UL) has long recognized the need to advance open access and the crucial role resource sharing services play in bridging between the subscription-based world and an Open world. Resource sharing professionals frequently use library services to search for and retrieve known items, and thus have a key role not only in the provision of services but in demanding better discovery systems, promoting new and better discovery and delivery tools, and educating users. As services such as Primo, EDS, and Google Scholar combine with library website design to promote central indexes, it is increasingly unrealistic to expect the average user to search multiple unpromoted channels for what they need, and so libraries must work to make all aspects of discovery and delivery similarly straightforward. Resource sharing professionals can make significant inroads in improving discovery and delivery of open access and subscription content by partnering with Open projects to improve the library user’s experience when searching for known content. This paper will share how UL has taken a concrete step in this direction by working with the Open Access Button to develop InstantILL, a simple, community-owned, search tool for students and researchers to get free, fast, and legal access to articles. With a simple interface that users expect, InstantILL integrates searching library holdings, searching open access materials, and submitting interlibrary loan requests into a single action. Attendees will learn why the library chose to pursue this project, what InstantILL is and how it was designed and developed, and the results of the implementation.

Analysis of the development direction of a conceptual academic library resource sharing service based on a case study of DXY
Niu, Xiaofei ; Zhang, Ling ; Han, Li
Under a global environment characterized by open and complex information, academic library resource-sharing practitioners should observe the information-service market beyond a “library-oriented” setting and rethink the development direction of the service. To investigate this issue, this paper presents an analysis of the development trajectory and characteristics of DXY, a Chinese information service enterprise. This study also discusses the development of academic library resource-sharing service from three dimensions, namely, service targets, service contents, and service roles. Findings show that the academic library resource-sharing practitioners should break through the traditional cognitive framework of “academic users on campus” and “document providers,” and furthermore, consider upgrading the service to assume a comprehensive role as information sharer, information connector, and platform operator simultaneously. This change will enable the move toward a knowledge service orientation.
