Brown Bag: Come Together Right Now: An Introduction to the Open Access Network - with Rebecca Kennison

Officially launched just over a year ago, the Open Access Network (OAN) offers a transformative, sustainable, and scalable model of open access (OA) publishing and preservation that encourages partnerships among scholarly societies, research libraries, and other partners (e.g., academic publishers, university presses, collaborative e-archives) who share a common mission to support the creation and distribution of open research and scholarship and to encourage more affordable education, which can be a direct outcome of OA publishing.

Brown Bag: Issues in Curating the Open Web at Scale - with Gary Price

Sep 20, 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Location: 

E25-401

Much of the web remains invisible: resources are undescribed, unindexed or simply buried --  as many people rarely look past the first page of Google searches or are unavailable from traditional library resources.

At the same time many traditional library databases pay little attention to quality content from credible sources accessible on the open web.

How do we build collections of quality open-web resources (i.e. documents, specialty databases, and multimedia) and make them accessible to individuals and user groups when and where they need it?

Feb 23, 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The traditional way of publishing new findings in journals is becoming increasingly outdated and no longer serves the needs of much of science.  Vitek will discuss a new approach being developed by F1000, an Open Science Platform, that combines immediate publication (like a preprint) with formal, invited, and transparent post-publication peer review.

Twenty-five years ago, jobs in humanities computing were largely interstitial: located in fortuitous, anomalous corners and annexes where specific people with idiosyncratic skill profiles happened to find a niche. One couldn't train for such jobs, let alone locate them in a market.
