Erasmus staff training week 2016 : Open Access : academic libraries' role within a moving context

STT 2016

Dear European fellow,

Want to remember your 2016 STT week? Come and see the pictures.

Practical information

Please find here all the practical information you need in order to prepare your stay (how to reach Liege, accomodation, etc.).

Once you are here, we also have collected all our favorite addresses in this practical guide. You will find there fancy places to eat, shops where to buy Belgian beers, chocolates or any other yummy specialities.

The ULg International Relationship Department can also provide you information concerning the administrative aspects of your training at the ULg Library.

Let's talk about OA

According to the Budapest Open Access Initiative (BOAI, 2002), Open Access to academic and scientific literature means its free availability on the public internet. Because it allows quicker access to scientific discoveries, increases international visibility for the researcher and is a realistic alternative to commercial models of publication (whilst maintaining the principle of peer review), the Open Access movement has been changing the world of scientific publishing and also the academic libraries. This 2016 Erasmus week aims to question the new roles and opportunities which emerged from the Open Access movement, for the academic libraries.

Through interactive presentations, based both on ULg Library's expertise and on each participant experience in Open Access, the main OA components (mandates, author rights, Open Science, etc.) will be addressed.

The targeted audience for this STT are the librarians, but also more widely any member of the staff working in an academic library and concerned by the Open Access movement (director, scientist, lawyer, IT, etc.) .

Details of the program

  • Monday 7/03 (AM) : Let me introduce you my amazing neighbour : a small playful game in order to learn to know each other. Don't forget your business card!
  • Tuesday 8/03 (AM) : General presentation of ULg Library : we will present a bunch of facts and figures, in order to let you know who we are, where we come from and where we wish to go!
  • Tuesday 8/03 (AM) : New needs, new spaces : the example of ULg Life Science library : with the switch towards digitalized resources, a lot of emptied spaces are available to new goals. We will discuss the example of the ULg Life Sciences Library
  • Tuesday 8/03 (AM) : Brief presentation of each participant's institution : within a 180 seconde-timing, each participant will give a punchy presentation of cutting-edge aspects of his/her own institution.
  • Tuesday (8/03) (PM) : From Open Access to Open Science : the Open movement is evolving towards a more global "open" approach, also including a free access to data and software produced with public funds. André Luxen will address in particular the data acquisition problematic.
  • Wednesday (9/03) (AM) : Institutional and geographical mandates : a multi-level problematic. A successful Open Access policy definitely involves the existence of a mandate. This one can be established by an institution, a government, etc. This session will present a global overview of several types of mandates, of how they combine to each other and of their consequences on the diffusion of the scientific production.
  • Wednesday (9/03) (AM) : Bibliometrics / altmetrics, helpful tools for assessing research and scientific career? Today, research and career assessment seems deeply linked to the bibliometric indicators, even if this link depends on the scientific area concerned. Are these indicators as objective as they pretend to be? Which are the new perspectives offered by the altmetrics? A brief general introduction will be followed by case studies from each participant's institution and a global discussion.
  • Wednesday (9/03) (PM) : Everything you always wanted to know about Open Access (and much more...) : this presentation will start with a general presentation of the main concepts linked to Open Access (green/gold road, etc.). Then, we will discuss case studies from ULg and each participant's institution.
  • Thursday (10/03) (AM) : Scientific publishing within the OA context: Traditional publishing models have been challenged by the OA movement. Does the OA movement involve a switch towards new publishing  models or can the  two work together? We're looking foward to hearing your opinion...
  • Thursday (10/03) (AM) : Teaching information literacy within the context of the OA paradigm + Library as an actor of OA : the example of the Agronomy Science Library. During  his 2-part presentation, Bernad Pochet will share with you his rich experience about teaching information literacy, while training the students to become aware of the impact of their practices. The second part of his presentation will introduce you the Agronomy Science Library and its press, as an example of OA project lead by an academic library.
  • Thursday (10/03) (PM) : Whose rights/Who is right? Problematic of the author rights within the context of Open Access. As the researchers are both great consumers and producers of scientific literature, the author right problematic is essential to them. Moreover, the OA context tends to make this problematic more complex. "Do I have the right to put my publications on my institutional repository?" "Will I loose my author rights if a choose to publish in OA?" are two examples of questions that will be developped in this presentation.
  • Friday (11/03) (AM) : Sharing freely digitalized content, the DONum project (Stéphanie Simon) / Discovering Ulg library's heritage : visit of the "Marie Delcourt" room (Cécile Oger). Along with the scientific literature, many other types of content can be freely put at anyone's disposal, for example digitalized patrimonial content. That is what is done in the DONum project. In parallel with the visit of the digitalization unit, you will also have the opportunity to see the original pieces, that belong to ULg's patrimonial collection.
