The NIH Public Access Policy – Views from the Library Trenches
You’ve heard the specifics of the NIH Policy. Now find out how librarians are responding to the need to get researchers up to speed on compliance with the policy.
· What strategies librarians are using to support their communities. What’s worked; and what hasn’t;
· How to get started, and which groups to work with at your institution;
· What tools librarians can use to help researchers and improve compliance rates;
· How librarians can work with each other to improve outcomes.
This webinar featured presentations from three libraries with experience on the ground helping researchers with the NIH Public Access Policy, followed by a Q&A with the audience.
The following presenters discussed their unique approaches in the trenches of supporting and providing outreach on the policy:
Emily Mazure, Duke University Medical Center Library
Susan Steelman and Jessie Casella, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Library
Scott Lapinski, Harvard University, Countway Library of Medicine
