IFLA Conference sessions on open access

For those of you who are not attending the IFLA Conference, there are at least two sessions on open access to science and technology information.  One is sponsored by the  Science and Technology Libraries Session  and the other by the Agricultural Libraries Session .

Full text of  papers may be accessed at IFLA website at:
http://www.ifla.org/annual-conference/ifla75/programme2009-en.php
The papers are linked under the appropriate place in the program so the STL ones are Tuesday afternoon and the Ag Libraries are on Monday afternoon.

Copyright Permission for deposits into Aquatic Commons

I have now deposited three dissertations into the Aquatic Commons along with a number of student papers.  In doing this, I have modified the form the Aquatic Commons had for obtaining copyright permission.  Their original form was written from the perspective of an organization giving permission.  In the materials I have been dealing with, I am working with individual authors.  Stephanie has taken my template and posted it on the IAMSLIC web page (URL link is below).  It is a MS Word document that I edit and then save as a PDF to send to the author to sign.  Once I have a signed copy, I send the PDF to Lisa Raymond to keep on file at the IAMSLIC archives at Woods Hole.

The IAMSLIC Executive Board decided not to print the 2008 proceedings.
