Open Access

Open Access: An evolving alternative or a maturing threat?

October 22, 11:30am - 1:00pm
Manoa Campus, Hamilton Library Alcove

Join the UH Manoa Library in celebrating Open Access Week with Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of Libraries at Kansas University, who will be our keynote speaker for Open Access Week, October 22, 2012 at 11:30 a.m-1 p.m. in the Hamilton Library Alcove.

Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of Libraries at the University of Kansas (KU) has been instrumental in the development of a faculty-initiated open access policy adopted by KU. Haricombe is a founding member of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI), and serves as the KU Provost's designate for open access implementation at KU. She is a member of the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Steering Committee and serves on the South African Research Library Consortium’s Executive Management Team. Prior to joining KU in 2006, she was dean of libraries at Bowling Green State University. She holds doctoral and master’s degrees in library and information science from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.

Lorraine Haricombe will present a talk entitled, “Open Access: An evolving alternative or a maturing threat?” Although open access offers an alternative to the traditional publishing model that provides unrestricted internet access to peer-reviewed scholarly articles it has garnered significant discussion and debate. No longer at the beginning of the open access movement and not yet at the end, we have a decade of experience to assess advancements in the open access ecosystem and the work ahead of us to realize the goal of unrestricted internet access to new scholarship.

RSVP to Beth Tillinghast 956-6130 (sspace@hawaii.edu) or for lunch (vegetarian or meat) by October 17th.
If you prefer to opt out of lunch you are welcome to drop-in, no RSVP necessary.

We heard from Bradley and learned more about his pioneering work at a virtual lecture.

  • ACRL Scholarly Communication 101 Road Show You are invited!
    When: April 25, 2011
    Where: Hamilton Library, University of Hawaii at Manoa
    Who:

    Two presenters under the auspices of ACRL shared their expertise in scholarly communication in a four-hour workshop that emphasized experiential learning.

    Molly Kleinman
    Special Assistant to the Dean of Libraries
    University of Michigan

    Sarah Shreeves
    Coordinator, IDEALS
    University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

    Learn more about
    • New methods of scholarly publishing and communication
    • Copyright and intellectual property
    • Economics of scholarly communication
    • Open access and openness as a principle

    The four hour workshop was followed by a two hour brainstorming session hosted by the UH Manoa Scholarly Communication Committee to talk about collaborative strategies for the UH system.

    Who Should Attend

    All UH librarians were invited. The workshop was appropriate for those with new leadership assignments in scholarly communication as well as liaisons and others who were interested in the issues and wanted foundational understanding. The Workshop was attended by 51 librarians and faculty from most of the UH System campuses.

  • Open Access Week 2010

    Open Access is Sustainable Access for All!

    Faculty scholars and researchers routinely give away the fruits of their labor to for-profit publishers of scholarly communication.

    1) Research library budgets cannot sustain ever-increasing subscription costs for scholarly journals; open access journals provide a different model for scholarly communication that empowers the author rather than the publisher.

    2) When research is published in open access journals and/or placed in open access institutional repositories, members of the public can access needed research results, which are often funded with tax-payer monies.

    3) A growing body of research suggests that open access to research articles and research data spurs on new discoveries and is more cited than research locked behind a pay wall.

    Join us in exploring these myriad efforts to liberate scholarly communication during the international celebration of Open Access Week, 2010. Events organized for the week are:

  • The Center for Teaching Excellence and The University of Hawaii Scholarly Communications Team presented the Issues in Scholarly Communications brown bag discussion series.

    Scholarly communication is fast approaching a crossroads. Individual disciplines, and the larger scholarly community, must make decisions on exchanges of scholarly information. National repositories such as PubMed Central, OpenAccess journals and university-based institutional repositories are changing the landscape.

    The event was a gathering of colleagues, where perspectives were shared and new perspectives were explored on past and evolving scholarly communication issues. Discussions were moderated by the UHM Scholarly Communications Team. Please see the attached flyer for links to several relevant articles.

    Access to Research -- Thursday, February 18th. Noon - 1:15 PM
