FYI, forwarded on behalf of Curtis Brundy at ISU. He's a major force leading 
the charge in transformative/transitional publishing. Please be in touch with 
him directly if you have questions. BTW, I do plan to participate in both 
initiatives.  Best, Jeff

Dear Colleagues,

 ), an initiative to transition anthropology journals to open access, is 
recruiting collections/scholcomm librarians to serve on focus groups this 
summer to provide feedback on the recruitment message for a new open access 

Libraria is partnering with Berghann, Brill, and the American Anthropological 
Association to approach libraries in the latter half of 2019 with a 
subscribe-to-open (S2O) model of open access to move a series of journals to 
open access in 2020. Before approaching these libraries, we'd like to have a 
group of librarians review and comment on the approach taken to framing this 
offer over a two-week period at their convenience. Participating in such a 
focus group is also a way to learn more about, and help have a hand in shaping, 
the development of this new model.

If you are willing to help with this initiative by taking part in the Libraria 
Focus Groups, please email Curtis Brundy, cbrundy [at] 
iastate.edu<mailto:cbrundy [at] iastate.edu>, by July 5.

In addition, PLOS may also be looking for feedback this summer from the library 
community on their own open access pilot project. If you are interested in 
additional focus group opportunities that may come available, such as with 
PLOS, please indicate so in your email.
