    Abstract:
    In 2017, the Music Library Association appointed its first open access editor. Part of the task for the successful candidate was to develop a strategic vision and infrastructure plan for open access publishing by the Association. After the 2018 annual meeting, a pilot project to deposit conference materials into the Humanities Commons Open Repository (CORE) became the first official open access project to launch. However, a lot of open access activity has been happening behind the scenes. The current open access landscape presents some unique challenges and some exciting opportunities: new services, collaborative initiatives, and publishing platforms are poised to redefine what is possible for MLA. Members will hear about initiatives to develop collaborations, evaluate publishing platforms and possible infrastructure, and projects to open strategic MLA publications. This presentation will give the first report of open access activities to date to the membership and outline a vision for increased open access activity within the association. Members will also be invited to share ideas and help shape priorities for the future of open at MLA.
