Come celebrate Open Access Week (October 20-26) at the Henderson Library!

“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.

You are invited to the 2014 ICPSR Data Fair series of webinars!

Join us in the Henderson Library Conference Room beginning at noon on October 6th to October 9th for the “Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research – Powering Sustainable Data Access” webinar series.

The call for public sharing/public access to scientific research data continues to grow. Initially there seemed to be little recognition of the need to finance public access to research data, but fortunately funding-sustained public access is making its way into the conversation.

For many years, ICPSR has hosted several public-access research data archives that are sustained by federal and foundation funding. ICPSR’s 2014 Data Fair will feature webinars about many of these archives and collections, including an introduction to the National Archive of Data on Arts and Culture; the R-DAS collection at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Data Archive; two Gates Foundation-funded collections at the Resource Center for Minority Data; an orientation to the National Addiction and HIV Data Archive Program; and a Q & A about the Gates Foundation-funded Measures of Effective Teaching Longitudinal Database.

You will find descriptions of these webinars in the Data Fair program: http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/content/membership/datafair/index.html

Other offerings will include a presentation about ICPSR’s current efforts to fund and achieve sustainable public-access data sharing models, including its newly launched collection known as openICPSR.

Also of note, ICPSR will launch the Data Fair with an orientation webinar focused on our membership archive – composed of a data collection and related teaching resources that have been sustained successfully for over 52 years. Membership matters, and this webinar titled, “Understanding ICPSR,” will provide members – and those exploring membership – with in-depth tours of ICPSR’s research data services education resources, and the benefits of membership.

We invite you to join us for one or all fourteen webinars airing October 6-9, 2014! For further information, contact Bob Fernekes, at 478-7822 or by email at fernekes@georgiassouthern.edu.
