Core is committed to equity in librarianship and to expanding who has a voice in our community. Open access(OA) is integral to that process, which is why we publish several OA journals, including Information Technology and Libraries, Library Leadership & Management, and Library Resources & Technical Services.
This year’s Open Access Week theme is “It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity”. We believe that keeping professional journals open is essential to building structural equity within Core. Just because OA is freely available does not mean that it is free to produce. We need your support to continue to make our open access journals sustainably OA.
This is why from October 25-October 31 we are asking for your help and seeking pledges to support Core journals. A gift of $10 or more earns you a button that shows your OA support.
The beauty of open access is that it is a community project that everyone should have the chance to participate in. Join us in supporting OA and making librarianship more equitable today.
