Small School, Big Reach: Open Access Outreach On A Liberal Arts College Campus, Janelle L. Wertzberger Dec 2014

Small School, Big Reach: Open Access Outreach On A Liberal Arts College Campus, Janelle L. Wertzberger

All Musselman Library Staff Works

The liberal arts college environment provides opportunities for campus-wide engagement of open access issues that may differ from those at larger institutions. Because we support fewer campus authors, we are able to provide a high level of service. Librarians’ close connections with faculty and students allow us to move beyond articles and theses and solicit a wide range of scholarly and creative works to share in our repository. In addition, we’ve fostered conversations about open access, open textbooks, altmetrics, and copyright among faculty, staff, and students. This poster will present a snapshot of a variety of outreach and education strategies …

Did I Sign My Rights Away? Copyright For Authors, Janelle L. Wertzberger Oct 2014

Did I Sign My Rights Away? Copyright For Authors, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Open Access Week at Gettysburg College

Most authors sign publication contracts without reading them carefully, and consequently transfer all rights to a publisher. Is there another option? (Yes, there is!)

Join us for Did I sign my rights away? Copyright for authors on Wednesday, 10/22/14, at noon (Specialty Dining Room 19).

This session will explain copyright for authors in plain English. Hear successful strategies used by academic authors, review a typical publication contract, and learn about tools that can help you retain the rights you wish to keep while continuing to work with scholarly publishers. If you like, bring a recent publication contract that you signed. …

“Would you like to open a subscription to this journal?”

“Download this article for $35.00.”

“Sign up to receive access to this article.”

During my summer research I saw a lot of these windows pop up on my computer screen. One dead end followed by another. I grew weary of not having access to the studies that were highly pertinent to my area of research. Although my frustrations were never abated, I accepted this as my reality. I’ve acquiesced to the idea that my future as a researcher will be filled with endless hours of staring at a computer screen …

Print your own cookie cutter on a 3D printer using one of these files designed by Chip Wolfe, Digitization Specialist/Access Services Technician at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

UPDATE 10-25-16: Stephen Gray of University of Bristol modified the file (it reportedly had a spike that prevented it from fitting on the printer bed). The modified version is being shared here in hopes …

Say Cheese, Celia M. Hartz

Blogging the Library

The last few weeks have been very busy; my project has finally gotten underway! It features several students, and it has been a lot of fun getting them together to take these photos that will be used to promote Reference Desk services. The philosophy is that other students will see these pictures and since it features people they know it will entice them to stop and read the posters or web banners. Hopefully these will be up and around the library the week before finals and students will utilize the Reference Desk more. [excerpt]

I have embarked on another researching journey; this time focusing on “The President’s Own” U.S. Marine Band. Ever since I got to see them perform at a neighboring high school my freshmen year, I been fascinated and inspired by the level of excellence and precision that the Marine Band displays. One day I hope to join their ranks as part of the euphonium section, but I still have a lot of work and practicing to do before I can achieve this goal. [excerpt]

Project: Ask Us. This project that has been in the works for quite some time is finally coming to fruition and I’m very excited about it. At the start of the semester it was very unclear what my project would be in this wide-world of librarianship and how to relate it back to the Reference Desk. Luckily for me the Reference department has been undergoing a sort of marketing revival and I get to help. Admittedly, I knew nothing about how to market the skills of reference librarians but after reading many articles, I think we have a winning strategy. …
