Collections Strategies Coalition (In Development), Sally Krash

Sally Krash

We are forming an advisory group around emerging collections strategies. I am sharing our draft as I know others are considering creating similar entities to address collections transformations. Initially, this was going to be a "Council", but "Coalition" is a better term, as members of this group will be most effective if they form alliances across the library (and with other libraries) to manage this change, which I expect will be somewhat disruptive!

Scholarship at Penn Libraries

The scholarly communication landscape has changed significantly over the past few years: open access continues to grow, more people expect to be able to read articles for free online, and researchers are creating and disseminating new types of digital scholarship.

Research Data Management Instruction For Digital Humanities, Willow F. Dressel 2017 Princeton University

Research Data Management Instruction For Digital Humanities, Willow F. Dressel

Journal of eScience Librarianship

eScience related library services at Princeton University started in response to the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) data management plan requirements, and grew to encompass a range of services including data management plan consultation, assistance with depositing into a disciplinary or institutional repository, and research data management instruction. These services were initially directed at science and engineering disciplines on campus, but the eScience Librarian soon realized the relevance of research data management instruction for humanities disciplines with digital approaches.

Oer State Policy Playbook [Draft], Sparc

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Why State-Level OER Policy?

The rising cost of higher education is about more than tuition—expensive textbooks and course materials remain a looming barrier to college affordability and access. Open educational resources (OER) are a solution to high-cost materials and state legislators are starting to take notice. Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that can be freely used, downloaded and shared to better serve all students. OER include all kinds of content such as textbooks, lesson plans, assignments, games, and more, and can include printed materials, not just digital materials. Nearly half of all states have considered ...
