The institution's open access policy:

The Library OA Position
"Successful policies are implemented through expectations, education, incentives, and assistance, not coercion." Peter Suber

To disseminate our (librarians') scholarship as broadly as possible. We endeavor to make our scholarly work openly accessible in conformance with open access principles. Whenever possible, we make our scholarship available in digital format, online, and free of charge.

To grant the Claremont Colleges Library (CCL) a Creative Commons “Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States” license to each of our scholarly works to allow the CCL the right to archive and make publicly available the full text of our scholarly works via the Claremont Colleges's digital repository, Scholarship@Claremont.

To deposit the author’s final version of our scholarly work in the Scholarship@Claremont as soon as is possible, recognizing that some publishers may impose an embargo period.

To seek publishers whose policies allow us to make our scholarly works freely available online. When a publisher’s policies do not allow us to make our works freely available online, we resolve to engage in good faith negotiations with the publisher to allow deposit of pre- or post-print versions of our scholarly work in the digital repository.

To promote Open Access content and tools as resources and to assist scholars in making their research openly available.
