For Libraries

Libraries have led the charge to open up access to the scholarly literature. It’s time to turn that leadership into leverage to reduce costs, to save staff time, to improve library services, and to open up more even content and importantly infrastructure. The Open Access Button provides a suite of tools that provide the missing link necessary to translate gains toward Open Access into benefits for both budgets and patrons.
