In response to member interest, the Canadian Library Association has created a Task Force on Open Access.
The mandate of this Task Force is to prepare a report for CLA Executive Council providing:
(1) a draft Policy Statement on Open Access in the Canadian Library
(2) recommendations on procedures and practices to implement the Policy
should it be approved;
(3) a draft CLA Position Statement on Open Access in Canadian libraries.
The Task Force is very interested in hearing from you!
To keep up to date, please see the CLA Information Commons Interest

Or, please feel free to contact the Convenor or any of the Members to
share your thoughts about open access. For contact information, visit

If there are similar groups in other countries - we'd love to hear from you!
