Event Description

K-State Libraries’ Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship celebrates Open Access Week

K-State celebrates Open Access Week, Oct. 19-25, 2015, with expert insight on new federal research mandates.

This year’s theme is “Open for Collaboration,” which is doubly fitting, since K-State Libraries recently opened The Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship (CADS). On Thursday, October 22, CADS will host a discussion of recent federal open access mandates.

Researchers across campus are impacted by requirements that federal agencies with more than $100M in R&D expenditures create plans to make results of federally funded research freely available to the public. Accordingly, CADS has invited professionals from the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) and SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE) to give their perspective on the OSTP Memo and the FASTR Act.

  • Shawn Daugherty is assistant director for programs and operations at SPARC. She handles member services, federal and state policy and general operations. Prior to joining the SPARC team in 2014, Shawn developed and implemented advocacy strategies for non-profit clients at The Sheridan Group.
  • Judy Ruttenberg, program director at SHared Access Research Ecosystem (SHARE), is primarily responsible for managing the SHARE initiative, which is building a free, open data set about research and scholarly activities across their life cycle.
  • Cynthia Hudson-Vitale from Washington University St. Louis, is a visiting program officer providing outreach and engagement support for the SHARE initiative. She is engaging with the SHARE working and task groups and the larger stakeholder community to increase the adoption of SHARE services.

Each guest will speak for about 10 minutes, leaving room for discussion at the end.

For your convenience, you can join the discussion in person in Hale Library’s Hemisphere Room or via Zoom with meeting ID: 560 424 803.

3:30-4:30pm Central
