At last night’s Alumni Association dinner, Tynan Hoffman, a College Assistant who works in Cohen Library, received the “Stanley Feingold Award,” which is given to a political science student “based on a writing competition focusing on the American political system.”  He received this $1,000 award for a policy brief on the gray wolves of Montana, which were de-listed from the the Endangered Species Act and subsequently hunted during the 2009 season. Ty is currently a student in the master’s program in Library Science at Pratt Institute.

Open Access Week

Filed under: Digital Resources,News — Tags: , , — pam @ 9:33 am

Open Access Week, the global event to promote free, immediate, online access to research celebrates its fourth year, October 18 – 24. Open Access Week is an opportunity for the worldwide academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access (OA), to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

This year’s OA Week preparations kick off with a challenge to researchers from Dr. Philip E. Bourne, Professor of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of California San Diego and Founding Editor-in-Chief of PLoS Computational Biology. In a video posted to the OA Week Web site, Bourne calls upon scholars to think beyond free and ready access to the literature – made possible by Open Access – and consider how technology may be deployed to advance research, to truly mine the increasing amount of available literature.

For more on the open access movement, see Transforming Scholarly Publishing through Open Access: A Bibliography by Charles W. Bailey, Jr. of Digital Scholarship.
