Another reason to publish as Open Access - libraries hurting big time financially and they will be cancelling many subscriptions

If you need any more incentive to publish a paper in an Open Access manner if you have a choice - here is one. If you publish in a closed access journal of some kind, it is likely fewer and fewer colleagues will be able to get your paper as libraries are hurting big time and will be canceling a lot of subscriptions. (e.g., see this page from UC Davis system Library Collections: A Forum - About the Libraries - University Library - UC Davis).
