Tuesday October 19 – Thursday October 21 - Librarians in the Library's "Research, Collections and Scholarly Communications" unit will facilitate continuous interactive drop-in training sessions for the university's faculty and graduate students. Focus of the sessions will be an introduction to the SURFACE institutional repository and guidance on how to upload publications (Oct 19: 9am-5pm; Oct 20: 10am-Noon; Oct 21: 3:30-5:30pm - Electronic Training Center, Lower Level - E.S. Bird Library).
Throughout the week, Librarians will also staff a SURFACE/Open Access information table in E.S. Bird Library’s Learning Commons.
SURFACE, the Syracuse University Research Facility and Collaborative Environment, is a database that will provide access to the extensive and diverse array of work produced at S.U. Its purpose is to gather, organize, disseminate and preserve the cultural and scholarly record. Making the richness of S.U. knowledge available to the world through free and open access is the very essence of fulfilling the mission of education as a public good. Syracuse University faculty, staff and students with questions about SURFACE can send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
