As part of our ongoing efforts to champion open access, the ALA Washington
Office today submitted a
members of the Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs
voicing our support for the Federal Research Public Access Act of 2009 (S.
1373). Specifically, the letter includes the resolution passed by the ALA
Council at the 2009 ALA Annual Conference held recently in Chicago.
This bill, introduced by Sens. Lieberman and Cornyn, would help ensure free,
timely online access to the published results of taxpayer-funded research
produced by 11 U.S. federal agencies and departments.
