Welcome to the OSU Libraries News and Events page!

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).

You are now able to pick up and check out most items held for you on your own! On Monday October 10, 2011, The Valley Library moved most of its holds (local OSU and Summit materials) from behind the circulation desk to the shelving directly in front of the circulation desk. Materials shelved there are available for users to retrieve and checkout at self-check terminals without staff assistance. Holds are organized numerically by the last four digits of your OSU or Convenience Card ID number. Staff and student assistants are still at the circulationdesk ready and available to assist users with any questions or concerns.
