n Europe, academic institutions have government support to mandate faculty
participation in open access repositories. This means that faculty are
required to self-declare and self-submit their publications for inclusion
in an open access environment.  Within this model, the faculty submit the
work, and the library ensures that it presents accurately (good metadata)
and well (good software design) within an open access repository. In the
US,  cultural patterns within academia, in addition to an absence of
government mandate, typically mean that faculty are not required to
contribute their scholarship to open repositories.
