This collection brings together a dynamic set of librarians, scholars, practitioners, policy makers and thinkers in order to take measure of the open access movement. It provides both practical examples and theory for understanding the open access movement, open data, open educational resources, open knowledge, and the opportunity for an open and transformed world. Our contributors focus on the meaning of open access and its potential to leverage existing technology to transform how we support, share, and access research.
