Erfolgreiche Lobbyarbeit für bibliothekarische Angelegenheiten

SPARC Executive Director Heather Joseph beschreibt im Library Journal, wie der NIH-Victory erreicht wurde. Direkt aus dem „Wörterbuch der Zutaten für erfolgreiche Lobbyarbeit“:

Very early on, SPARC created an Open Access Working Group, which brought together seven major library organizations. That was critical in creating and maintaining a strong, united stance on this issue across the entire library community. We took this concept further to build a larger coalition, the Alliance for Taxpayer Access (ATA), which encompassed a wider variety of groups with a shared interest in unlocking the potential of publicly funded research, patient advocates, consumer groups, public interest groups, students, etc.
