1 COPYRIGHT OUTREACH and OPEN ACCESS ALA Annual 2011 Martin J. Brennan, MLS Copyright and Licensing Librarian, UCLA Library

2 IN BRIEF The dual nature of my role Open Access and UCLA Observations from the ground level Individual Choices Institutional Choices Action Across Institutions

3 WHO AM I? “Copyright and Licensing Librarian” Based in Scholarly Communication and Licensing Unit Outreach and consultation on Copyright and IP to all University affiliates Assist in Licensing and ERM initiatives Liaison to Course Management System administration & support (Moodle) Consult frequently with faculty & student authors regarding author agreements and proper use of copyrighted material

4 Disclaimer I am not an attorney, and cannot offer legal advice. The following information is presented to educate about copyright law and institutional policy in general terms. If you are unclear about your options when confronted with a specific legal issue related to copyright, you are urged to consult with an attorney with a background in copyright law.

5 CONSULTATIONS Copyright issues invariably dependent upon specific issues; available, individualized consultation is key Time commitment can be substantial Ready with referrals to relevant campus units and officers My library unit serves as liaison to eScholarship, the UC repository and Open Access platform

6 The Dual Nature of my Role One half: Key consultant on the limits of Copyright law One half: Champion of Fair Use and Open Access My work leads me to where the rubber hits the road – the point where authors negotiate with publishers Continuing challenge: convincing scholars that the virtue of Open Access publishing should outweigh their need to submit to the highest impact journal in their field

20 OBSERVATIONS FROM THE GROUND LEVEL Campus social movements come from students – not faculty Adoption of Open Access is progressing at discipline-specific speeds Humanities are generally behind the curve in relation to certain hard sciences – we have leveraged their experiences to spur progress UCLA has more OA journals in the Humanities than in the hard sciences

21 INDIVIDUAL CHOICES Often consult with me when it’s too late for Open Access to be a viable choice Education and outreach helps, but it’s difficult to impart this message at the key moment. Example: ACRL speaker agreement I had to sign

22 INDIVIDUAL CHOICES ACRL speaker agreement:

23 INDIVIDUAL CHOICES ACRL speaker agreement: “Your signature on this agreement will constitute a warranty that all of your material included in the program is your original work, does not violate copyright or the proprietary rights of others, is factually accurate, and contains no libelous matter.”

24 INSTITUTIONAL CHOICES Of course, tenure committees endorsements of Open Access publication as a virtue is vital (and UCLA is not leading the way, yet) Advances in article-level metrics part of the answer? UCLA Library is considering a fund for Open Access fees, like the Berkeley model UCLA Library already committing substantial human resources to pave to Open Access road

25 ACTION ACROSS INSTITUTIONS: OPEN HUMANITIES PRESS

27 PHILOSOPHY AND OA
