The mission for most university presses is to take scholarship born on campuses and provide access to it by creating, distributing, and marketing the books and journals which capture that scholarship. For most of the last century, presses have embraced information scarcity models with paywalls and cost-recovery to fund and execute that mission. But now we live in a world of information abundance where digital tools allow scholars the alternative of using the scale of the internet to create open access to their work. The plenary will offer three perspectives of how university presses can rethink their missions of access, clarify their value propositions, and explore new models of connecting readers and consumers to scholarship.
