OpenAccess 101: What Every Faculty, Researcher, and Student Should Know

Sep 25 2014 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm

The open access movement began in the 1990s and has since been adopted by an increasing number of funding agencies, academic institutions, publishers, and individual researchers. If you haven't encountered open access yet, you probably will at some point in your career. This presentation will provide an overview of the main ideas behind open access, give a brief history, look at the recent OA policy development, and help you understand your role and responsibility in the changing landscape of Scholarly Communication. Most importantly, the new services of the Library's Scholarly Communications Office will be introduced to help faculty members comply with funding agency requirements and Princeton University's Open Access policy.

Lunch will be provided.

Speaker: Yuan Li is the new Scholarly Communications Librarian at Princeton University Library.  In her role, she will manage the Princeton University Library's efforts to support scholarly publication innovations and reforms, supervise and coordinate activities related to the Princeton Open Access policy and the Princeton Institutional Repository, and work with the Office of General Counsel to assist faculty and students with copyright questions related to Open Access. Prior to joining Princeton, Yuan had served the same capacity at Syracuse University, University of Rhode Island, and University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
