A brief description of how the institution’s library(ies) support open access to research:

Research has shown that open access publications tend to be distributed more widely and cited more often than their non-open-access counterparts. With more than 24,000 journals currently in print, no library can have every journal in its collection, meaning that all non-open-access articles miss some of their potential audience.
