  • Research discoverability is important. One of the main challenges for the library community is how we can collaborate to ensure the research that is increasingly being deposited in institutional repositories is discoverable to users. Not easy, but important. Open access is a worry. We’re going to have to pay twice, for subscriptions and for article processing charges.
