The gift of Open Literacy



Adding the concept of OA would be increasing irrelevant "noise" in an already overwhelming information learning process.

There are already so many things to show students, it seems like an extra frivolity.

Open Access doesn't include titles of interest to our students, many of them are rather obscure.

We feel that our resources are sufficient.

After finding an article through the search engine not being able to find it Not getting full articles Limited options Not being able to “Get” articles The title comes but when you click it says cannot find and open.

I don't know how it could be done, given the institutional culture.


... OA is primarily of importance to librarians. …the students care about the information and its quality, not the packaging.
