Webinar: Subscription cancellations and alternative access options

(19 May 2020) EIFL will hold a webinar on “Subscription cancellations and alternative access options”

Event Date: 04 Jun 2020

This EIFL webinar will cover subscription cancellations and alternative access options. Our guest speaker Colleen Campbell from the OA2020 Initiative will discuss why the libraries and consortia decided to cancel some of their journal subscriptions, how they secured stakeholder buy-in for the cancellation, how they planned for it, and how they communicated it to users – and what alternative access options are available to their users.

The webinar will cover:

  • Motivation and rationale for the cancellation
  • Assessing potential demand for access after cancellation
  • Stakeholder alignment and support for the cancellation
  • Alternative access options
  • Communication to users
  • Post-cancellation: How are users, libraries and consortia coping?
