eIFL novice o odprtem dostopu

Iz vira, ki nam ga zagotavlja dr. Mojca Kotar (UL, Univerzitetna služba za knjižnično dejavnost) znova nekaj aktualnih novic o odprtem odstopu:

Dear colleagues,
The first international Open Access Week - October 19-23 ( - is an opportunity to broaden awareness and understanding of Open Access to research, including access policies from all types of research funders, within the international higher education community and the general public.

This year, the Open Access Week organizers will highlight a growing suite of educational resources that you can use to design your own programs on Open Access, for your respective audiences.

*Downloadable resources*:
- videos and webcasts;
- handouts: What Faculty can do to promote Open Access, What Librarians can do to promote Open Access, What Universities and Administrators can do to promote Open Access, What Research Funders can do to promote Open Access, We support Open Access, A very brief Introduction to Open Access, Open Access
- posters, flyers, buttons, icons, banners, etc.

*Sample program tracks*
We're putting together a handful of sample program tracks that build on these resources, taking into account the audience, the right topic, and their awareness level. Of course there is a virtually unlimited number of potential discussion topics, so we'll limit our samples to just ten. Our advisers in the development of these sample program tracks are Kay Vyhnanek, Washington State University; Allyson Mower, University of Utah; Adrian Ho, University of Waterloo; and Marianne Buehler, Rochester Institute of Technology.

*Event in a box *
The Open Access Week organizers are going to create a range of different items in various different format such as videos and PDF's etc and you get to choose which you want to use and when, giving you ultimate flexibility to plan a gathering that suits you, e.g.:
- Animated OA 101 introductory video
- Expansion of Voices of Open Access Video series from 2008 to include a piece from scientists in the developing world on why OA matters to them
- Synchro-blogging competition in follow up to last year's success

*The OASIS project* ( features the resources for researchers, administrators, librarians, students, and the public - as well as different OA awareness levels - that will be the centerpiece of the 2009 Open Access Week program.

Some Universities have already announced their plans for Open Access Week (e.g. Expanding Reach and Increasing Impact:

You can take a look what kind of events the University of Michigan University Library organised during its Open Access week at the end of March:

We invite you to:
a) list your organisation if you plan any events celebrating Open Access Week here: (please choose your region, e.g. Africa: Open Access Week 2009, Asia: Open Access Week 2009, Europe: Open Access Week 2009 and add your country if it's not listed). Or send me your information and I will fill in the wiki page for you.

b) give us feedback on whether our available and planned resources look useful to you and if not, how might we improve it?

c) let us know what resources we might have missed,

d) what other samples would be useful to you for us to develop.

Thank you for your feedback!
With best wishes,
