Open Access Symposium, Wednesday 9am-345pm, Moot Court Room

openaccessThe symposium, titled “If you Love Your Scholarship, Set it Free: Embracing Open Access at CSU” is in its eighth year and facilitates the growing movement toward preserving and growing the ability to find, share and use information.

Academic and research communities are invited to learn how open access maximizes and promotes their work, provides stronger ownership for researchers and authors, and ultimately, has far reaching benefits for academia and society as a whole.

The program schedule includes Lisa Macklin, Director of Scholarly Communications Office, Emory University, who will discuss “How Open Access is Changing Scholarship” and “Copyright: What Every Author Should Know.”

Llewellyn Joseph Gibbons, Professor of Law, University of Toledo, will present “Creative Commons Licensing” and Caroline Whitacre, VP for Research at The Ohio State University, will speak about the “SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem) Initiative” on which she is a steering group committee member. SHARE is a steering group that pulls together stakeholders from the research community to guide policy and build the infrastructure for storing, preserving, and sharing research and data.

The symposium is free and open to all. Register here. For more information on the symposium, click here.

This just in: One Size Never Fits All

9781627224895_p0_v1_s260x420Are you interested in leadership?  One Size Never Fits All is based on original research by Dr. Arin Reeves and discusses the ways traditional business development strategies fail to capture the strengths of women in firms.  Dr. Reeves’ research shows that women are often more successful in certain aspects of business development, such as networking, establishing relationships, and delivering excellence in client service, but that firms primarily reward closing the sale and getting the sale.  This book is a must-read for women (and men) who want to learn more about advancing into leadership positions.
