This plenary presentation was given on April 8 at UKSG Conference 2013 and discusses the following points: (1.) Open access provision does not mean that access is provided with absolutely no cost associated with it. Management of open access publishing is an investment that libraries are making (2.) Open access publishing whether it is done in your library or outside of it still needs to be organized and managed. (3.) Open access within your institution is an enterprise-wide endeavor and this is especially true within the library itself. Whatever you do, do not create another silo of management.
