I attended Ontario Open Access: Accelerating Science organized by Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation on March 18, 2016. It was a one-day symposium to discuss the challenges, opportunities and perspectives of open access in Ontario.
John Willininsky (author of The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship amongst many other accomplishments) was the keynote speaker. In crafting an open access policy his advice is to not include any embargo period. He also cautioned against policies that allow the deposit of a "final draft" as good enough: "final draft is a distortion of the scholarly record."
Over the coming months we will be embarking on a project to make more space in the Chancellor Paterson Library for students.
This means we will be removing from the collection:
bound print journals that are available online in our library databases
selected print books located in the main stacks on the 3rd and 4th floors
selected items that are in our "storage" collection located on the ground floor
(very) selected items in our government publications section on the ground floor
