**NOW featuring an introduction to the recently launched OASIS (Open
Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook), with Alma Swan.**
A commentator frequently featured by the Financial Times, Dr. James
Boyle is a law professor who is increasingly well known for his
articulate and poignant arguments in support of wider access to
research. Josh Sommer is a student, patient, and co-founder of the
Chordoma Foundation, challenging the likes of Dr. Boyle for their
celebrity as he too gains renown as an impassioned and convincing
advocate for Open Access to research.
Duke University is fortunate to name both of these compelling
individuals citizens on campus ? and library staff were quick to use
this home-field advantage when they made plans for Open Access Day in
2008.
On June 25, Pat Thibodeau, Associate Dean at the Duke Medical Center
Library, and Kevin Smith, Scholarly Communications Officer, will join
us to describe the Open Access Day events that featured Dr. Boyle and
Josh Sommer among speakers from the law school, medical faculty, and
libraries. They?ll talk openly about the success and lessons learned
from live events, as well as from participation in Web events
simulcast by the OA Day organizers and using tables and videos to gain
attention for the Day. Participating in the Webcast is a great way to
share ideas and experience with others who plan to or may celebrate
Open Access Week in October 2009.
Open Access Day _at_ Duke is featured in the Libraries? Scholarly
Communication blog at
http://library.duke.edu/blogs/scholcomm/2008/09/23/open-access-day-duke/.
Videos of the Duke presenters are online at
http://www.sparcspaces.org/video/category/open-access-day/.
This Webcast, held in preparation for Open Access Week 2009, October
19 ? 23, 2009, will also feature the official launch of OASIS (the
Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook). This now-annual event,
expanded from one day to a full week, presents an opportunity to
broaden awareness and understanding of Open Access to research,
including access policies from all types of research funders, within
the international higher education community and the general public.
120 campuses in 27 countries celebrated Open Access Day in 2008.
This year?s program will highlight educational resources on Open
Access that local hosts can use to customize their own programs to
suit local audiences and time zones. Open Access Week is being
organized by SPARC, the Public Library of Science, Students for Free
Culture, eIFL, OASIS, and the Open Access Directory. To register to
participate in Open Access Week, or for more information, visit

Please join us.
