I agree-I had the same reaction! 

Me too.

We used pictures of the materials from Flickr to illustrate our resources - the badges look great :-)


At Northwestern University, we're hosting a faculty panel, a student panel and Ed Valauskas as guest speaker, along with some sessions on authors rights and the NIH mandate conducted by librarians at Northwestern's Galter health sciences library.


Details are shaping up and are posted here (still in flux a bit)


On Wednesday of OA week, after Ed's talk, we are officially opening our new Center for Scholarly Communication and Digital Curation, a new facility and collaborative service hosted by the library. 

We are an arts college, so the idea of showing Creative Commons movies such as RIP! and the McIntosh work are great ideas. We also are interested in the sharing and reuse of images and music. I think the students and faculty would be very receptive to this.


I'd love to hear how your showing on RIP! goes. We are showing it this year, too.
You have some great ideas that apply to our programs. I'll let you know how it goes.

Welcome everyone,


PLoS will be speaking at a number of institutions.  To name a few University of British Columbia, University of Manitoba, UCSF, Stanford, London University of Hygene and Infection Disease, etc.  Plos will be hosting an event Heather Joseph and William Gunn from Mendeley and in the UK PLoS office we will be collaborating with HIFA a listserv that focuses medical researchers and advocates in developing countries. 


Few ideas:

  • Show case all your authors who publishing in OA journals.  I can provide you authors who have published in PLoS but be sure to include all OA journals.
  • Create posters or powerpoint presentations that loop
  • Get author quotes and include them in poster or powerpoint presentations
  • Send OA information to an email list
  • Partner with other departments or perhaps journals clubs in the labs
If you would like to ask PLoS for some swag/information, email Donna:-

Hi Donna,


What kind of swag does PLoS have to offer?



I can get PLOS and BMC pubs from my campus but how about other OA publications.  Anyone have some good strategies for identifying local faculty with OA pubs?
We are doing a small exhibit in the library (probably focusing on local authors with recent OA pubs).  And we are doing 2 town hall meetings to discuss our faculty open access resolution, which many faculty haven't really thought about much.
