Digital Trends and the Global Library Community

Abstract

This year's theme of International Open Access Week was Open for Collaboration, and centered on the political and legal gains open access communities have made worldwide. Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition has been the major organizer of Open Access week since its beginnings in 2007. The world-wide participation of so many different communities in this event, which was celebrated on every continent except Antarctica, shows that the issue of open access, which a few years ago was mainly a concern of the U.S. academic community, now has international backing and is shaping how scientific research will be disseminated in the future.
