I'm working at the University of Cape Town as a Subscriptions Librarian. In the past year that I have been employed in this capacity, the direction of my work has taken a turn. I was involved in the organising of the inaugural SPARC Africa conference, Open Access Symposium 2016, held in South Africa. The South African National Library and Information Consortium (SANLiC) attended the event; this resulted in the Consortium directorate and board gaining much interest in the Open movement for the purposes of changing the subscription model for the South African higher education landscape. The potential for more Open practices in subscriptions excites me.
