Research funders and academic institutions are increasingly adopting Open Research policies in order to develop a richer, more diverse and accessible world of scholarly communication. As academic institutions start actively encouraging or mandating that long-form research outputs, such as scholarly books, be made available open access, they also need to be confident that this content can be embedded into academic library collections in the same way as gated or paywalled content.

This breakout session will examine how OA Books can struggle to find their way through established library acquisitions and metadata supply chains, and what can be done to face this challenge and ultimately improve the discoverability of Open Access Books.
