Open Access Erasmus staff week 2018

The libraries of the University of Liège (ULiege Library) organize an “Open Access Erasmus Staff Week” to reflect on the new roles and opportunities that emerged from the Open Access & Open Science movement for academic libraries.

This edition will target librarians and staff members working in an academic library/institution concerned by the development and implementation of Open Access/Science tools and services and who would like to extend their competences in this area. Priority will be given to people with a beginner level or a basic experience in Open Access.

Program will include an introduction to Open Access, a presentation of the four Open Access platforms developed by the ULiège Library and of  the methodology used for their implementation. We will  also discuss about open data, author's rights and copyright issues and the role of library on the Open Access movement.

Attendees are invited to present their own institution or Open Access projects in 180 sec.

Presentation and demonstration of the various open access initiatives developed at the ULiège and their specific functionalities

  • Whats is open access ?  : Quick reminder of the origins of OA, its advantages and the current situation of the movement.
  • ORBi : Open Repository and Bibliography of ULiège. Based on a strong open access mandate, the institutional repository of the ULiège aims to collect, preserve and disseminate the scientific publications and communications of the university’s members.
  • PoPuPS : Is intended to allow ULiège scholars to easily, rapidly and freely publish their full-text journals online
  • MatheO : (Master Thesis Online) Is the gateway to master's thesis from the University of Liège. It aims not only to solve the problem of paper archiving and perennial preservation, but also to offer a much wider accessibility and visibility to these students' works, many of them being of good scientific quality.
  • DONum : Created as a virtual library, DONum is dedicated to the dissemination of digitized scientific, heritage or cultural collections of the university services and his partners.
  • Author rights & Open Access. The author’s rights within the context of Open Access. What are the author’s rights from legal point of view? Do I have the right to deposit my publications in my institutional repository? Will I lose my author’s rights if I choose to publish in OA?
  • My Institution in 180 seconds. Participants are invited to present their own institution/library or OA project in a short time.
