Some Thoughts on Libraries and the Digital Humanities in an Open Access Context   |   Presentation Slides

In the Office of Digital Humanities at the National Endowment for the Humanities, a great deal of the work we fund involves academic librarians. In my talk, I will touch on several areas: 1) the important role of academic librarians and data management for the humanities and how this will affect research grants in the future; 2) the rise of open data projects in the humanities; 3) libraries as partners in the digital humanities; 4) electronic monographs in the humanities.

Getting to “Gobsmacked”: Faculty, Students and Open Access   |  
Presentation Slides

For the past 7 years, The Ames Library has been working with various departments to provide green archiving of faculty work and to publish undergraduate research journals. Our scholarly communication efforts have evolved from focusing on the products of scholarship to the process of scholarship, incorporating information literacy and outreach.  For ‘open’ to flourish in its many forms, librarians, as individuals and as a profession, must contribute our skills and expertise to the ongoing debates and initiatives in our field and within higher education.

Learning to Give a Hoot: Open Access Workflows for Academic Librarians: OAWAL (Pronounced owl)   |   Presentation Slides

Graham Stone and Jill Emery have been working to try to develop an outline of some of the best practices for managing open access workflow management in academic libraries. In March 2014, we went live with OAWAL (pronounced owl): a crowdsourced blog/wiki to develop some of these practices and learn what innovators and experts in the field of scholarly communications and open access management have been doing. Our project is international in scope and relies heavily on countries such as the UK where country mandates are driving the development of workflows and management tools. This presentation will focus on recent developments both in the US & UK with open access management and will also draw from recent input sessions held at the Charleston Conference.

Scholarly Communication is People – Or – Three Things I’ve Learned in Three Years as a Librarian   |   Presentation Slides

The info-scape around open access has evolved to include a broad range of ideas, skills and research practices. The academic librarian’s role is growing beyond being purely informational, and must include advocacy and participation in changing the system. In this talk, I propose that the crux of scholarly communication is creating peer-partnerships with researchers and scholars, and that in order for the system to evolve, all libraries need a scholarly communication initiative, and all librarians should be invested in this challenging work.
