Celebrate Open Access Week with UK Libraries

Published: Oct 19, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 19, 2012) — University of Kentucky Libraries will present several events in celebration of Open Access Week, Oct. 22-28. Now in its sixth year, the global event celebrates open access as an effective and efficient means of disseminating research and scholarship.

 

UK Libraries has scheduled two presentations and an OA Café in recognition of Open Access Week. The first panel discussion is a live webcast of "Perspectives on Open Access: Practice, Progress and Pitfalls," which will take place at 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, in the UK Athletics Auditorium, at William T. Young Library.

 

"Perspectives on Open Access" will feature a panel of experts discussing why open access is an imperative to them and to their work. The panelists participating in this online discussion are: Michael Carroll, professor of law at American University and founding board member of Creative Commons; Matt Cooper, president of The National Association of Graduate-Professional Students; Maricel Kann, assistant professor of biological sciences at University of Maryland and member of PubMed Central National Advisory Committee at the National Institutes of Health; Carlos Rossel, publisher of The World Bank; and Neil Thakur, special assistant to the deputy director of Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health.

 

The week's keynote lecture, "Scholarship Unlocked: The Future of Open Access," will begin at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, in the UK Athletics Auditorium, at William T. Young Library. A panel discussion will follow the talk.

 

"Scholarship Unlocked" will feature David Solomon, a professor of medicine from Michigan State University. Solomon will deliver a talk on the current state and future of open access. Specifically, he will address the different models of open access publishing and their long-term sustainability. Three UK panelists will respond to Solomon's speech following the presentation. They include Brian L. Frye, assistant professor at UK College of Law; Neal Hutchens, assistant professor at UK College of Education; and Stephen Wrinn, director of The University Press of Kentucky. There will also be time for a facilitated discussion between the speaker, the panelists, and the audience. A reception will follow the event. 

 

The library will also set up an OA Café to answer your questions about open access and author rights from the UK campus community from 12-1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 22, outside of the White Hall Classroom Building.

 

No registration is required for any of the UK Open Access Week events. All events are free and open to the public.
