The Librarians’ Association of the University of California is an official unit of the University.

Open Access: Reclaiming Scholarship for the Academy (October 16, 2015)
With the Academic Senate’s 2013 adoption of the UC Open Access Policy the University of California joined a growing number of universities and funding organizations promoting increased access to scholarly research. Please join the Librarians' Association of the University of California, Berkeley Division as we explore the application and implementation of open access (OA) policies across various academic disciplines, the role of OA repositories, how adoption of UC’s Open Access Policy has impacted individual campuses and OA advocates, and future OA trends. This Conference will be of particular interest to librarians, though anyone interested in open access and scholarly communication is welcome to register.
The Conference will feature keynotes by Michael Eisen and Randy Schekman, both UC Berkeley faculty members and longtime open access advocates, as well as a panel discussion, poster sessions, lightning talks and breakout sessions
