This article discusses the broad and complex funder open access (OA) policy
environment in the UK and describes some of the challenges libraries face
in providing frictionless services to support academic compliance. It
offers a view on the actions of publishers in this policy environment, as
well as outlining how strategic discussions have moved beyond the library
to include the whole institution. Finally, it outlines the work being
undertaken at Imperial College London to develop a new OA policy and
licence which could support academics and institutions with compliance and
HEFCE Research Excellence Framework eligibility in a single step.
