C&RL preprints go open access!

The recently launched preprint service of College & Research Libraries is now completely open to the public, regardless of ACRL membership status. C&RL preprints are fully vetted articles that are ready for publication pending only final copy editing and space in an upcoming issue. Under the new open access model, these timely new research articles in academic librarianship are now available to a wider audience.

“We’re pleased to make these preprint articles openly available,” said ACRL Executive Director Mary Ellen Davis. “Drawing on our long-standing concerns for the health of scholarly communication, ACRL continues to experiment with our access and business models as a publisher.”

Additional details are available in the press release about the new service.

Make sure to visit the C&RL preprint page often to discover new content!


  1. Jonathan – There is an RSS feed for C&RL content. We are going to start adding new preprint articles to the feed when they come online. Thanks for the suggestion!
