Promoting Open Digital Scholarship: A Canadian Library Perspective
MetadataShow full item record
Librarians at York University have developed a stepwise approach to promote open access among faculty. Recent policy by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research requiring public access to outputs arising out of funded research has provided the impetus for librarians to engage with faculty on these issues. In this paper we describe approaches used to introduce researchers to self-archiving and publishing options to meet funding requirements. Promotional strategies are explained and future directions are outlined. The changing role of librarians in research support is discussed.
