Rollins College is considering an OA mandate

Rollins College is at least thinking about an OA mandate.  After the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences adopted its OA mandate, the Executive Committee of the Rollins Arts and Sciences Faculty asked Jonathan Miller, Director of the Library, to write a memo on the issues raised by the decision.  Miller has posted the memo to his blog. 

Comment.  Kudos to Rollins for asking and kudos to Miller for posting.  I imagine that many colleges and universities took a similar step after the Harvard vote (one month ago today), and I'd be glad to publicize all those that are willing to go public.
