Steve Brantley

A book review of DYNAMIC RESEARCH SUPPORT FOR ACADEMIC LIBRARIES. Hoffman, Starr, (Ed.) London: Facet Publishing, 2016, xxi+154pp., $63.00, 978-1-78330-049-5.    
Dynamic Research Support for Academic Libraries is a refreshingly inclusive collection of essays with the ambitious goal of broadening our perspectives as academic public service librarians, so that we may better serve a wide range of research needs.

This is right and proper since indeed this shift has taken place in the profession and few (if any ...

Decoding And Negotiating Publisher Contracts: Know What You're Signing Away When You Publish, Sarah L. Wipperman

Penn Open Access Events

You wrote an article, and it was accepted to a journal. The publisher sends you a Copyright Transfer Agreement (CTA) or some other type of publishing agreement to sign, but what does that agreement actually say? What rights are you giving away, and what rights do you retain? Can you post your article to your website? Can you use it in the classroom? Can you send it to colleagues?

This workshop will:

  • look at a variety of CTAs across different disciplines
  • give you tools to understand general journal policies on when and how you can post articles
  • show you ways ...

Open Access On Campus: Bringing Nonprofits To The Libraries, Melanie Allen, Rachel Caldwell, Nick Guernsey, Ann R. Viera, Alan H. Wallace 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Open Access On Campus: Bringing Nonprofits To The Libraries, Melanie Allen, Rachel Caldwell, Nick Guernsey, Ann R. Viera, Alan H. Wallace

Faculty: Other Publications and Presentations -- UT Libraries

Low attendance at Open Access Week events caused academic librarians to ask: What can we do to further open access without asking faculty and students to attend events during such a busy time of the semester? Instead of reaching out to faculty directly, librarians at the University of Tennessee Libraries are reaching out beyond the campus community. Health sciences, social sciences, and scholarly communication librarians offer a workshop to East Tennessee nonprofit organizations to assist them in finding and accessing scholarly research. After the workshops, participants are invited to be interviewed on camera about why public access to research matters ...

Journal Evaluation Tool, Shilpa Rele, Marie Kennedy, Nataly Blas

LMU Librarian Publications & Presentations

The changing mechanisms of scholarly publishing may make it difficult for you to determine where to publish the results of your research or creative works. In order to assist you in making the best decisions for your work, and to avoid journals that may not be credible, the William H. Hannon Library has developed a rubric for the evaluation of journals. Our focus during the development of this tool was specifically to address the concerns of our Loyola Marymount University faculty about Open Access journals, but this rubric may be applied more broadly to any kind of journal.
