Open Access and Your Publications: What's Copyright Got to Do with It?
Join PSU colleagues in PSU Library Room 170 for a webinar featuring Kenneth D. Crews
For librarians, researchers, and many other library users, the open access movement has enabled easy and reliable access to a wide range of new publications. However, the success of open access hinges on the terms in the agreements between authors and publishers. The copyright language that spells out whether the public will have access to specific material might be buried in a cryptic, pro forma email attachment or even a click-through agreement. Don’t let your materials stay hidden under a rock—facilitate access by learning to be proactive with the expert advice of copyright authority Kenneth D. Crews. In this ALA Editions workshop you will learn to
• Be a good steward for your institution’s rights
• Scrutinize the publication contracts for your projects and advise faculty and researchers
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, October 24, 11:30am PDT

Peter Suber on Open Access
The internet lets us share perfect copies of our work with a worldwide audience at virtually no cost. We take advantage of this revolutionary opportunity when we make our work “open access”: digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. In this talk, Peter Suber — Director of the Harvard Open Access Project — shares insights from his new concise introduction to open access — what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. This event includes questions and responses from Stuart Shieber (School of Engineering and Applied Sciences), Robert Darnton (Harvard University Library), June Casey (Harvard Law School Library), David Weinberger (Berkman Center / Harvard Library Innovation Lab) and more.
