Abstract

The frames by which we approach any societal problem matter. We can examine the scholarly communication system and the systems deeply intertwined within it through many possible lenses, including the lens of cooperation or competition. In this three-hour workshop participants will examine briefly the history of the development of faculty open access policies in the US, and then in more depth the purpose, benefits, and challenges of campus open access policies and review the politics and possible processes for mapping out and developing a path toward the creation of a faculty open access policy. Attendees will together consider the larger national and international contexts in which faculty open access policies exist, and the challenges and benefits of seeing the effort holistically as a cooperative project, nestled within other cooperative or competitive projects.

Comments

Ada Emmett graduated with an MLIS from the University of Washington in 2002 and has been at the University of Kansas (KU) since the fall of that year. She now serves as the Director of the Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright at KU. Tenured in 2007 and promoted to Librarian in 2016, Emmett played a significant role in planning and executing the approach taken with the faculty senate regarding the development of a KU open access (OA) policy in early 2008. She also played a significant strategic and leadership role on faculty senate committees in drafting, vetting, and then passing of the open access policy in 2009. She led the faculty senate’s OA Implementation Task force with senior and distinguished faculty, OA advocates and administrators at KU in 2009-2010 to seek input on, and offer revisions to the OA policy and an implementation plan for the faculty senate review. Emmett regularly consults informally with schools around the country working on developing, passing, and later implementing OA policies. In her current position as Director of the Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication she leads library staff and the program through ongoing implementation of OA services and scholarly communication outreach, building up of the open educational resources program, working with faculty on rights issues related to authorship and classroom sharing, and regularly presenting to faculty and graduate student groups.
