OCLCRSC19 ILLiad breakout - Open Access discussion

During the 2019 OCLC Resource Sharing Conference in Jacksonville, there was an ILLiad breakout session.We gathered into nine specific groups to discuss pain points and visions for the future. Each group had a moderator/note taker and the notes are provided below. If you have questions about the specifics, you can comment here and/or contact the moderator. 

The Open Access discussion was moderated by Dawn Mick from Iowa State University.
