His papers contain many of the personal and official letters, research notes, manuscripts, and scientific offprints that he and his estate accumulated over the years 1959-1994, with the bulk dating to his time of affiliation with the Linus Pauling Institute of Science and Medicine, 1971-1991. Genetics Program Records, 1973-2009 (RG 242) http://nwda-db.orbiscascade.org/findaid/ark:/80444/xv02432 http://archives.library.oregonstate.edu/files/archives/ORErg242.pdf These records document the administration of the interdisciplinary graduate program in genetics at Oregon State University and provide information about the curriculum, faculty, and students. The Genetics Program was established at OSU in 1977 and was closed in 2009. This collection was received in 2011. Marti, Fritz, Papers, 1909-2009 http://nwda-db.orbiscascade.org/findaid/ark:/80444/xv20528 http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/specialcollections/coll/marti/index.html Fritz Marti (1894-1991), was a Swiss-born philosophy professor highly-regarded as an expert on post-Kantian idealism. His papers contain a significant trove of correspondence, including letters with such figures as Jacques Barzun, Walter Lippman and John F. Kennedy. The archive likewise features a wide swath of biographical items, research notebooks and unpublished manuscripts. One particular highlight of the collection is an annotated manuscript of Marti's unpublished translation of F. W. J. Schelling's The Method of University Studies. Moule, Jean, Papers, 1984-2011 http://nwda-db.orbiscascade.org/findaid/ark:/80444/xv54431 http://archives.library.oregonstate.edu/files/archives/OREmoule.pdf These papers document Moule’s teaching, research, and writing in the field of multicultural education, especially teacher training. Moule earned a Ph.D. from Oregon State University in 1998 and was a faculty member in the OSU College of Education from 1998 until her retirement in 2011.

As part of Open Access Week, Oregon State University Libraries is pleased to be hosting a talk by MacKenzie Smith, Science Fellow at the Creative Commons, on the impact of Open Access and research data.  Her talk, entitled, ³Open Access to Research Data:  the Next Frontier,² will look at the open science movement, the implications of open science and the roles of libraries to curate and provide long-term preservation for scientific content.  This will be a timely talk for both librarians and researchers as funding agencies (most notably the National Science Foundation) are pushing grantees to consider the long-term management of research data.  These changes, coupled with the open science movement, are pushing researchers, libraries and administrators to address the future management of research data on their campuses.

MacKenzie Smith's talk will highlight this event starting at 2:30-4:00.

MacKenzie Smith is a senior academic library leader with particular  expertise in digital libraries and archives, online information and knowledge management, and e-Science data curation and governance. She was the Associate Director for Technology at the MIT Libraries for the past decade, overseeing their technology strategy, research and development program, and technological systems and services. Her research has focused on applications of the Semantic Web to scholarly communication and digital data curation, including long-term data preservation and archiving. She was also the Project Director for MIT¹s collaboration with Hewlett-Packard to build DSpace, the open source digital archive platform now in widespread use, and has led many other research projects that advanced the international digital library agenda. She continues to serve as a Research Director at the MIT Libraries, overseeing current sponsored research projects, and is also a Science Commons Research Fellow at the Creative Commons, working on issues related to research data governance (policy and the technical implementation of policy).
