Abstract: This workshop is aimed at librarians and information specialists interested in increasing their understanding of Open Access and how they can foster it in their institutions among their researchers and users, from the very beginning of the publishing process. The workshop intends to provide a space to discuss why librarians must be committed to Open Access and foster it among authors, researchers and users. The key points to be debated are: the benefits for authors, scientific community, institutions, funders and society in general; the needs of researchers when they have to choose where to publish a scientific outcome; the European policies on Open Access; the special features of health science repositories; and the quality of open-access journals. At the end of the workshop, the attendees will have found their own answers about why they should foster Open Access and what they can do in their institution to promote it.
