Open in Action: New Options for Sharing Scholarship
In recent years, The Digital Scholarship Services at NYU has seen an increase in the number of digital repositories where scholars may freely share their publications and data. To celebrate Open Access Week, They have invited the founders of two prominent new multi-disciplinary repositories to discuss their goals and priorities, and the technology underlying their systems. Humanities Commons is a social repository for humanists launched by the Modern Language Association in collaboration with Columbia University Libraries. SocArXiv is a preprint service directed by group of sociologists and research librarians in partnership with the Center for Open Science. They will have a round-table discussion with plenty of time for questions from the audience.
Open to the public. Visitors without NYU id should check in at the Security Desk upon entering the library.
Open Access Week is an international event supporting open access to scholarly research.
