Open infrastructures are a foundational part of building a more equitable scholarly communications ecosystem. They provide the underlying mechanisms, often via software or digital services, that run open access journals, index open content, provide metrics and analysis, and more. Libraries benefit from these systems by receiving free content and services that help establish quality and discoverability to open content.
Open infrastructures offer libraries much more than cost-free alternatives to commercial infrastructures. They are also open because they have community-based governance models and invite community input to feed into future developments. Libraries can influence those they fund. They can do this by engaging in development sprints, by providing translations or code contributions, or by representing the interests of their communities on boards, committees or working groups.
Contributions, both financial and in-kind, provide libraries with the opportunity to ensure that these infrastructures, and therefore the emerging new scholarly ecosystem, are developed in a direction that works best for libraries.
The proposed workshop will explore ways of creating a more inclusive scholarly communications environment with a focus on open infrastructure. We will stimulate infrastructures to further engage research institutions in the development of open infrastructure, including both privileged and less privileged organisations and countries, whilst encouraging them to take these opportunities describing how.
The workshop will consist of two parts starting with a panel discussion with infrastructures supported by SCOSS discussing how they involve contributing libraries in their governance and from a librarian who actively contributes to open infrastructure. The second part of the workshop will facilitate discussions between smaller groups of workshop participants on the institution/open infrastructure relationship question. We will explore how to facilitate and improve exchanges between infrastructure providers and users to increase community ownership, design, and governance for the benefit of both.
