Series: Libraries, Publishers, and Open Access
Speaker: Catherine Mitchell, Director of Publishing, Archives, and Digitization, California Digital Library (UCOP)
Topic Description: The University of California has prioritized making the scholarship of its researchers openly available to readers and scholars around the world via multiple “pathways to open access.” Jeff Mackie-Mason recently presented here on the licensing agreements that libraries are establishing with publishers to convert subscription journals to open access. This presentation will focus on two other significant pathways: the UC open access policies and the eScholarship open access publishing and repository program. As director of the unit at the California Digital Library that implements the open access polices and provides eScholarship publishing services, Catherine Mitchell will report on the impact of these additional institutional commitments to open access -- and will describe a new, related initiative to help emeriti faculty gather electronic copies of their publications and make them openly available via eScholarship.
Organizer: Organized by Donald Mastronarde, Professor of the Graduate School, Emeritus Melpomene Distinguished Professor of Classical Languages and Literature
