As libraries and publishers continue to navigate the Open Access movement, the need for inclusive content and research, budgetary constraints, and varying purchasing/licensing models, there have been increasing obstacles on the path to ensuring all needs are being met in library-publisher collaborations. This presentation features current library and publisher perspectives to determine how these entities can work together toward flexible and sustainable solutions within the context of direct library-publisher collaborations, featuring librarians from Auburn University, Clemson University, University of Central Florida, and University of Kentucky. They provide insight into the challenges of mitigating outdated perceptions of content from diverse researchers and independent publishers that produce these publications. Issues to address include mislabeling publishers and content across the industry, how this occurs, the industry standards of vetting quality research, DEIA across the industry, and developing truly transformative OA models and initiatives.
