"CRL’s ‘Pivot’ to Open Access"

The Center for Research Libraries has released "CRL's 'Pivot' to Open Access."

Here's an excerpt:

Therefore, as of January 1, 2017, all digital materials hosted on the web by CRL, that derive from source materials in the public domain or for which CRL has secured the requisite rights and permissions, will be available without restriction. . . .

  1. CRL has digitized and posted on the web more than twelve million pages of materials from its collections to date. . . .
  2. Because of potential copyright restrictions, only about 35% of the twelve million are now available in open access. . . .
  3. The amount of public domain content on CRL servers will grow within the next few years, as on-demand digitization continues and as CRL receives digital files produced through partnerships. CRL in-house production now digitizes nearly one million pages per year, and generates approximately 2.9 million digital pages of primary legal publications annually through its Global Resources Partnership in Law and Government.
