Getting to Gobsmacked: Faculty, Students & Open Access


For the past 7 years, The Ames Library has been working with various departments to provide green archiving of faculty work and to publish undergraduate research journals. Our scholarly communication efforts have evolved from focusing on the products of scholarship to the process of scholarship, incorporating information literacy and outreach. For ‘open’ to flourish in its many forms, librarians, as individuals and as a profession, must contribute our skills and expertise to the ongoing debates and initiatives in our field and within higher education.
