Oregon State University Faculty Senate unanimously approved an Open Access Policy at the June 13, 2013 Faculty Senate meeting. The policy directs faculty to submit an electronic copy of the accepted (post-peer review, pre-typeset) manuscript of their articles to OSU Libraries for dissemination via the ScholarsArchive@OSU institutional repository.The policy grants Oregon State University a non-exclusive license to exercise any and all rights under copyright relating to its faculty's scholarly articles, in any medium, and to authorize others to do the same, provided that the articles are not sold for a profit. Implementation details will soon be made available on the Center for Digital Scholarship web page. In the meantime, Faculty are encouraged to send an electronic copy of future accepted manuscripts to scholarsarchive [at] oregonstate [dot] edu.

OSU Libraries & Press is proud to announce that one of our student employees, Hannah Mahoney, received the "OSU's Undergraduate Researcher of the Year for the College of Liberal Arts" award. Ms. Mahoney's research project A Global Affair: Understanding 1960s Geopolitics Through the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair is a compelling glimpse into the United States international political relationships at that time. Ms. Mahoney was also the 2013 OSU Libraries & Press Undergraduate Research Award and will receive the History department's Robert Wayne Smith Book Award, which "honors the author of the best research paper or review essay submitted in a history course during the academic year."
Applications are now open for two paid undergraduate internships in the OSU Libraries and Press. See the application Web page for full descriptions and requirements.
