Abstract: 

Depending on the perspective, the transition from subscriptions to
open access can be overwhelmingly complex, or elegantly simple - as
simple as rethinking the basic purpose of a library collection, and
rewriting your collection policy accordingly. This presentation
focuses on the theoretical aspects, and practical implications, of
transitioning to open access for libraries and librarians.
