CloudSource OA is a new content platform from SirsiDynix that aggregates open access (OA) content from the global body of open content. More than an aggregation of OA articles, CloudSource OA also includes eBooks, eTextbooks & Open Educational Resources (OER). The Collection Management toolkit lets you curate your own indexes, and Usage Stats deliver COUNTER usage reports.
Attend this brief session to learn more about the state of OA today and how it is transforming scholarly publishing; a breakdown of the available content; discovery features, including metadata enrichment, citation tools, permalinks, and other helpful end-user tools; and staff tools for collection management and usage reports.
All types of libraries can benefit from offering this vast body of OA content (currently at 50M+ resources) to their users, particularly in light of the library industry’s goals around furthering the principles around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
