Are we ready to have conversations about Open Access?
Barbara Fister, from the library trenches, posts her response commenting on the recent court case ruling about e-reserves.
She asks if all of us are ready to talk about how the scholarly publication process – publishing and access – can be better at spreading knowledge.
