Frequently we, scholarly communications librarians, talk about the labor that goes into copyright clearance. We spend hours browsing Sherpa/Romeo, but when we get to archiving pre-print or post-print restrictions our labor stops; because faculty do not self-archive their publication. At Loyola Marymount University, we have integrated Unpaywall and OA Button into our ingestion workflow to find pre-prints or post-prints. This snapshot will explore the analysis and findings of our use of these two free Google Chrome apps to expand Digital Commons @ LMU.
