Welcome But why are we here today? To answer your questions, explain your options as author, to ask you questions.
Happy Libraries = Happy Users Supply the world with free and easy access to scholarly research output Why do libraries care? – Stuff is expensive; our budgets aren’t growing; it’s good to share! Sharing promotes more research - by more experts - more quickly How is this possible? – Licensing your works in a manner you (the author) deem appropriate; you have the control* – Open Access is an new model for doing so
Managing and Publishing Your PhD Bibliographic Citation Management Support Through the Reference Department; Open Access options for publishing your Dissertation – Open access = freely available worldwide – Preservation = Trust Libraries to take care of it – Option presented through Grad School processes
Astronomy’s use of IUScholarWorks Nick Mostek: - official dissertation Scott Michael: - unofficial dissertation plus accompanying moving images
