ACRL / SPARC Forum Forum/Update Disneyland Hotel
Disneyland Grand Ballroom South
Description :

Through its standing Scholarly Communications Committee, ACRL sponsors a regular forum at both midwinter and annual conference to broaden the base of librarians who are knowledgeable about and engaged in scholarly communication issues. The highly popular forum series is co-sponsored by the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC). The topic and speakers are chosen 60-90 days before the conference based on issues that are most relevant at that time.

A sustainable, Open Access scholarly communication system requires robust, stable sources of funding. One key source of such funding are campus-based Open Access funds – pools of money provided academic institutions specifically earmarked to help authors offset the cost of journal publication. These funds have sprung up on campuses large and small, in colleges and universities across the U.S., Canada, and increasingly, worldwide. How are these funds created? Where are they located and who administers them? Where does the money come from? Are authors using these funds? Where can my institution turn for information on creating such a fund?

This forum will explore all of these questions and more, as a panel of experts delve into the latest developments in creating, implementing and sustaining this crucial resource.

Presenters include:

  • Chuck Eckman, Librarian and Dean of Library Services at Simon Fraser University
  • Sue Kriegsman , Program Manager for the Office for Scholarly Communication at Harvard University Library
  • Andrew Waller, Librarian at University of Calgary

These panelists will share their experiences in establishing and running some of the most visible and longest-running Open Access Campus Funds in existences, and discuss what’s working, what need fine tuning, and what they see pending as new developments on the horizon for these crucial resources.

Conversation Starters: Open Peer Review: Bold Steps Towards Change in Scholarly Communication Program Anaheim Convention Center
208A
Description :

Concept: Librarians, technologists, and faculty from Indiana University Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI) are examining the bold steps taken by MediaCommons Press and the open peer review model tested in the Spring 2010 issue of Shakespeare Quarterly. Building on this model (with support from MediaCommons developers) the team has created a tool that adds to the open review functionality with an eye towards both professional and educational usage settings.

While the program will introduce this technology development the majority of this program aims to start a conversation that focuses more broadly on the concept of open peer review, the dramatic impact potential for altering the process of scholarly communication (economics, purpose, measures of success), and the natural social tendencies the web environment already fosters for peer-to-peer (P2P) review.

In April 2011, Mellon awarded significant funds to MediaCommons to study P2P review. The white paper from this study is expected to be publicly available prior to ALA Annual, and if so, will certainly be a point of discussion during this Conversation Starter program. Libraries are already embracing leading roles in supporting open access journals and open institutional repositories. Supporting P2P tools and/or educating scholars about open peer review is yet another means for libraries to affect positive change in scholarly communication.

The program will begin with a 20-minute presentation from Kristi Palmer, an active member of the open peer review tool development team at IUPUI and leader of open access projects at IUPUI University Library.

The presentation will be followed by and open, facilitated discussion, with the following topics:
- Economics and P2P
- Promotion and tenure and P2P
- Reputation through badges
- P2P in the classroom
- Libraries and P2P
- Culture change and P2P

Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Hyatt Regency Orange County
Grand Ballroom B
Description :

"Opening Access for a New Era of Scholarly Publishing"

The ALCTS Access to Continuing Resources Interest Group invites you to hear a panel of speakers present on three timely scholarly communication topics. Scholarly communication is going through enormous transformation due to the strong foothold of open access publishing and the desire of authors to retain more control over their copyrights and their works. Open access (OA) mandates are becoming more widespread amongst academic and research institutions, enabling authors to deposit their articles in an open access repository. The University of Kansas (KU) was the first U.S. public university to adopt an OA policy for scholarly articles, and KU led the formation of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI). The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) was founded by scholars over fifteen years ago as an open access, continually-updated, authoritative online encyclopedia funded through grants and institutional members. And, responding to the demand for more open access options, many publishers have expanded their open access journal offerings. SAGE Open is one such journal, representing a broad-based open-access option for the social & behavioral sciences and the humanities. Q&A discussion will follow.

Description :

The Judge's Ruling in the GSU Case: What Does it Mean for Libraries?
On April 15, 2008, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press and SAGE filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Georgia State University for content posted on electronic course reserves. Through multiple motions and filings, the issues in the case were narrowed before the trial began on May 17, 2011. On May 12th, Judge Evans issued a 350 page ruling, which analyzed 76 of the 99 alleged infringing course readings and which took her almost a year to complete. Judge Evans found only 5 instances of infringement in the readings she so carefully analyzed. This Discussion Group will focus on the analysis Judge Evans applied for fair use, what arguments she found persuasive by GSU and by the publishers, and how other libraries may choose to apply the Judge's fair use analysis in their own electronic course reserves processes.

4:00pm - 5:30pm
The Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Research, Digital Scholarship and Implications for Libraries Presidents program, Program Anaheim Convention Center
Ballroom A
Description :

Tony Hey will describe the emergence of a new, ‘fourth paradigm’ for scientific research – involving the acquisition, management and analysis of vast quantities of scientific data. This ‘data deluge’ is already affecting many fields of science most notably fields like biology, astronomy, particle physics, environmental science and oceanography. The term eScience or eResearch is used to describe the development of the tools and technologies to support this more data-intensive, collaborative and often multidisciplinary research. This revolution will not be confined to the physical sciences but will also transform large parts of the humanities and social sciences as more and more of their primary research data is now being born digital.

This new paradigm of data-intensive scientific discovery will have profound implications for how researchers ‘publish’ their results and for scholarly communication in general. Indeed, the skills needed for manipulating, visualizing, managing, and, finally, conserving and archiving scientific data are very different. The details both of what will need to be preserved and how this will be accomplished to create an academically valid record of research for the future are only now beginning to emerge. What is clear, however, is that research libraries have the opportunity to play a leading role in this ongoing revolution in digital scholarship. Institutional repositories for both text and data are certain to play an important role in this new world and specialists in semantics, curation and archiving will need to work with the different research communities to fulfill their needs.

This talk will illustrate the far-reaching changes that this new paradigm will have on scientific discovery and what it mean to you in supporting this advancement of research. Clifford Lynch will discuss the long-term implications of this profound shift. Including, the need to create societal-level provisions to archive the evidence to support future scholarship, particularly in the humanistic, cultural, and social science spheres. There are also some very specific challenges and opportunities in scientific arenas such as medicine and public health, where new balances between personal and public records will need to be negotiated. Libraries are going to need to take leadership both as operational stewards of much of the broad social record and as advocates in the development of new policies and new social consensus about what constitutes the collective intellectual and social record that will support ongoing scholarship.
