The Virginia Tech Open Access Subvention Fund (http://www.lib.vt.edu/oafund/) subsidizes article processing charges (APCs) for scholarly peer-reviewed articles accepted for publication in open access or hybrid OA journals.
Institutional memberships and library subscriptions offer discounts to authors faced with APCs for OA journals: http://www.lib.vt.edu/openaccess/discounts.html
The Virginia Tech Library Faculty Association approved an Open Access Policy on Aug. 1, 2013.
VTL supports new OA scholarly communication initiatives such as Knowledge Unlatched, Open Library of the Humanities, PeerJ, and SCOPE3.
Since 2014, VT Libraries have sponsored at least one student to participate in the annual student and early career researcher conference on Open Access, Open Education, and Open Data. They share their experiences through the blog Open@VT.
