This is a collection of scholarly articles produced by faculty librarians at Arcadia University. Items herein reflect the wide range of scholarship that librarians conduct, some relating to librarianship and others to individual scholarly interests.

Open Access Resolution

The faculty of Arcadia University's Landman Library believes strongly in the principles of open access. Increased access to information benefits society as a whole, and leads to increased visibility of academic work and increased networking opportunities for scholars at Arcadia and around the world. Open access to academic information has become even more critical in light of sharply rising costs for online journals and databases, and these increased costs have impacted the accessibility of information at even the wealthiest of institutions.

As a result, the Landman Library faculty are fully committed to making their scholarship available to as broad an audience as possible. In that spirit, the Library faculty agree to submit their work to Arcadia's Institutional Repository, whenever feasible, to actively review publication agreements and seek out permission from publishers to include work in the repository whenever possible, and to consider publishing in open access journals where appropriate.
