In research universities, course materials encompass an enormous variety of types and formats, ranging from traditional textbooks to digitized versions of rare or unique primary sources in special collections to born-digital content. One-size-fits-all open access legislation and institutional policies created to cover conventional journal articles, monographs, or textbooks don't begin to cover all the rights issues that can arise in connection with these materials. UCLA's senior campus counsel, associate university librarian for collection management and scholarly communication, and executive director of federal relations suggest ways to adapt policies and steer legislation to make them more broadly OER-friendly.
