Bridging the Gap: Examining Faculty Perceptions of Open Access Publishing and Repositories
Dr. Jennifer Campbell-Meier, PhD., Assistant Professor, College of Communication & Information Studies, University of Alabama
Are UGA faculty publishing in open access journals, are they interested in using digital repositories for teaching and research, and to what extent are they aware of their rights as authors when they publish? Dr. Campbell-Meier will explore the answers to these and other questions from her 2011 study “Galileo Knowledge Repository: Faculty Survey” of the University System of Georgia faculty.
Monday, October 22, 10-11:30am Auditorium, Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries

Open Access to a Large Digital Humanities Project: The UGA Library and the Linguistic Atlas
Dr. Bill Kretzschmar, PhD., Harry and Jane Willson Professor in Humanities, Department of English, Franklin College, University of Georgia
As for many digital projects, the Linguistic Atlas Project (LAP) began with computing resources located within the research office itself, first personal computers and later servers. Now, however, we know that institutional support is needed to guarantee open access to research materials over the long term. Dr. Kretzchmar will discuss issues of institutional support for a large digital humanities project, and propose collaboration with the University Libraries as the only realistic option for long-term sustainability in this environment.
Wednesday, October 24, 4-5pm Room 329 Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.

Do people cite open access articles more than articles locked behind fee and copyright restrictions? Dr. Donovan and Ms. Watson will discuss findings from their 2011 article “Citation Advantage of Open Access Legal Scholarship.” The article is available from the Social Science Research Network:
