Abstract

During the last three years, global society has undergone unprecedented shocks and change including Covid-19, highlighted racial injustice, major supply chain problems, Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and high inflation in addition to ongoing, growing challenges presented by climate change. While these events and trends might seem disconnected, there is an important thread related to open scholarship. The rapid development of Covid-19 vaccines demonstrated the value of openly sharing research results. The most recent White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memorandum on public access has affirmed and extended the expectations regarding sharing results from federally funded research. Libraries and other cultural heritage institutions face a unique moment in time during which our leadership, our choices, and the people we empower could have profound benefits on global society as it seeks out the new equilibrium.
