James Madison University, in collaboration with the Association of Research Libraries, will convene experts and stakeholders to address key opportunities and challenges in collectively designing and building a shared platform to support the crowdfunded exchange of open access content in libraries. Through a series of successive focus groups, the project team will surface community requirements and principles for a collective system. The outcome will be a white paper of findings and recommendations that will be used to generate a request for proposals for the development of an open access collection development platform for libraries.
