Public Access to Peer-Reviewed Scholarly Publications Based on Federally Funded Research

In response to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy Request for Information on public access to peer-reviewed scholarly publications resulting from federally-funded research, the Oberlin Group submitted comments on behalf of the 80 members.  With the threat of the Research Works Act (HR3699) possibly turning back the progress made by the NIH mandate, this is a critical time for libraries to respond and advocate for more access, not less.
