1. A Common Thread

    28 March 2015: Keynote give at the Association of College and Research Libraries' 2015 Portland Convention. I show how three domains of my work are all animated by one idea. The three domains are "open access," "network neutrality," and so-called "campaign finance reform." The one idea is equality. I also debut a new hair style that I'm calling "the spike." Let me know what you think about either.

          • Alma Swan on The Open Access Map


            from Leslie Chan Added 558 1 0

            Open Access is now a global movement and initiatives are springing up across the world. But not all the projects are known and certainly they are not linked up systematically. It is important to have a single location where the diversity of OA initiatives around the world can be discovered. This will help to prevent duplication, will enhance collaboration, and will generally enable an approach where new projects properly build upon existing or completed ones. The Open Access map site will present a dynamic visual map of the world with all the known OA initiatives, developments, resources and projects. Users can choose to display selected projects, initiatives or services by selecting the desired search variable. The site will allow users to conduct searches or obtain overviews of Open Access developments around the world. A user could specify, for example, a particular country and see the number and types of repositories in that country, the institutions involved, the software used and so forth, along with the OA journals published from that country, their publishers, their titles, etc. Importantly, it will identify the key individuals who work on OA in that country so that others may contact them. In this way the site also serves as a networking tool, something that has the potential to facilitate and catalyse additional, new and innovative OA developments across the world. This is something new. No other service has attempted to bring information together in this way to provide a tool for networking on this scale.

            • A Matter of Discipline: The State of Open Access in the Arts


              from ARLIS/NA Added 2,562 0 0

              Providing a survey of open access publishing in the arts, Patrick Tomlin will give us an overview of the two dominant "flavors" of open publishing, the open access journal and the institutional or disciplinary repository, examining successful examples of both in disciplines like art history, architecture and design. We will look at what obstacles are slowing the uptake of open access publishing by scholars in the arts, and what possible roles the art librarian might play in raising awareness of open access and other pressing scholarly communication issues. Speaker: Patrick Tomlin, Head of the Art + Architecture Library, Virginia Tech *This is an encore presentation of Patrick's ARLIS/NA 2010 Boston conference presentation.
