Presentation to Address Open Access and Digital Scholarship

Posted on 11/4/2015 11:10:21 AM

"Spreading the Word: Open Access Digital Scholarship in the 21st Century," a presentation by Josh Bolick, will be given Thursday, November 12, at 11:00 a.m. in Stabley 201.

Changing Research Climate

The manner in which students and scholars produce and consume research has undergone a shift in recent decades. Expanded research territories, rich avenues for collaboration, and new paths for sharing knowledge abound.

At the same time, questions remain for many about this new landscape, questions such as: What is the status of open access journals?

Navigating the Open Access Landscape

What are the most professional ways for authors to leverage their rights to share research? What roles are available for libraries, university centers, departments, professional organizations, or individual scholars in promoting open access? How can the scholarly community navigate this landscape to accomplish our individual and collective goals? 

Join us for a presentation by Josh Bolick, Scholarly Communications Librarian for the Watson Library at the University of Kansas, to learn more about institutional repositories, open access journals, and the present and future of digital scholarship.

Opportunities Available to the IUP Community

Bolick will introduce these topics from his experience as a scholarly communications librarian, address specific opportunities available to the IUP community, and respond to audience questions.

If you expect to attend this event, the organizers ask that you please RSVP.

Refreshments will be served.
