Abstract

This presentation will identify new methods for in the libraries student employment program related to Open Access repository work. The hands on learning opportunities are focused on publishing production workflows, including: CV checking; author rights and permissions for depositing faculty papers in the UTA’s institutional repository; and creating a research metrics report to provide alternative impact measurements of the faculty’s publications in support of tenure and promotion packet of materials. Additional production processes include learning layout design and project management in publishing monographs and journals through a variety of publishing tools, such as: Open Journal Systems (OJS), Pressbooks, and InDesign.

The student work experience enhances the educational development and growth of students by providing training through a variety of library engagement. For example, shadowing the librarian, attending individual consultation with a faculty, or discussing ways to enhance the workflow. Scholarly Communication System learning outcomes for the student employees include understanding the research and publishing cycles, basic copyright issues, Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), publication process and timeline, author agreements, publisher policies, and other practices in OA publishing. When students have a detailed knowledge in OA their contributions to the Libraries increases and builds their confidence and sense of belonging that they will carry with them into their bright futures.

We will share additional details of student roles and related workflows, how their experiences translate to marketable skills in the workforce, and how they are more knowledgeable of rights management through the lens of Open Access repository work.
