Faculty Open Access Symposium April 8
April 1, 2009
When you publish, are you signing away your rights to use your own work? What happens to your data when your research project is finished? How does the “Harvard mandate” really work?
hat is an institutional repository and what kinds of things should it contain? What are some of the new models for publishing your research? What exactly does “open access” mean and why should you care?
These and many other questions will be addressed at the Open Access Symposium sponsored by the University Library and the Faculty Senate Library Committee Wednesday, April 8, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., in the Great Bay Room at the New England Center.
The goal of this half-day symposium is to increase awareness and to open discussion among UNH faculty on the issues surrounding open access and the changing scholarly communication landscape. Invited speakers will share their expert knowledge with us, followed by an open panel question and answer session during the closing reception.

For questions contact Eleta Exline, digital collections librarian (email@example.com). The symposium will be taped and presented as a Webcast on the library's Web site.
