As librarians, we support free access to publications in many ways. The two associations, VDB and BIB, therefore, feel obliged to lead the way in the publications of the largest national continuing education event. All publications within the scope of the congress volume of the journal o-bib will appear in open access. The associations recommend that the presenters also provide all other contributions to BiblioCon, in particular the presentations on the BIB-OPUS server as well as the posters and clips, with the open Creative Commons licence CC BY ( To this end, a CC licence reference should be included on the presentation slides and posters or in the clips. This recommendation applies to all publications on the BIB-OPUS server, even beyond BiblioCon.
