The implications for librarians are several: First, we need to raise awareness about the importance and advantages of open access publishing. Second, we need to advocate for other models of open access publishing that result in greater use than the hybrid model -- this includes supporting low-cost, fully-OA journals. Finally, we need to help researchers overcome hurdles with OA publishing and sharing their articles both by assisting with or finding funding for open access costs, and by facilitating easier ways of sharing articles through institutional repositories and other venues.
