Institutional open access funds are not new to academic libraries, but are they still relevant? How far can such a fund go towards transitioning scholarly publishing to a fully open access model? University of California Berkeley (UCB) and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) both dedicate approximately $100,000 annually towards helping authors pay open access publishing charges. Both institutions have also endorsed the goal to transition all scholarly publishing to open access through a plurality of models.

Libraries, as the coordinators of these funds, play an important role in promoting open access publishing and engaging with stakeholders on campus. The presenters will review how their funds have evolved over the years, how these funds fit into the larger ecosystem of open access publishing, and how they envision the funds in the future landscape. They will present the results of surveys of fund recipients and strategies to promote their funds.
