Collecting, Organizing, And Teaching The Ephemera Of Art Biennials, Alexander Watkins, Jane Thaler

University Libraries Faculty & Staff Contributions

This article describes a case study at the University of Colorado ...

Terms Redefined: Developing The Combination Of Electronic Resource Management With Open Access Workflows, Jill Emery, Peter H. Mccracken, Graham Stone

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

While many librarians have developed mechanisms and structures for managing local scholarship separate from their standard resource management practices, the intersection of the two content streams is occurring at many institutions.

During the past decade, the presenters have dedicated themselves to capturing best practices of electronic resource management and mapping out paths for creating open access workflows. Join them for a lively discussion and interactive session where they outline ways to bring these two initiatives together and identify the teams needed.

Providing Information And Public Outreach Across Three U.S. State Archaeology Offices During The Age Of Open Access, Samuel Thomas Ayers 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College

Providing Information And Public Outreach Across Three U.S. State Archaeology Offices During The Age Of Open Access, Samuel Thomas Ayers

LSU Master's Theses

Archaeology in the United States has been transformed into a mainstream, practical science over the past fifty years by Cultural Resource Management (CRM) and the federal regulations imposed by the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966. However, this form of archaeology has been plagued with criticisms since the NHPA’s enactment including issues of access and use of data maintained by state site files. State archaeology is publicly funded yet state and federal legislation often exempts CRM data from freedom of information laws. To mitigate this contradiction and stem the growing body of “gray literature”, new open-access (OA) technologies ...
