Another presentation on Slideshare

I’ve uploaded another presentation to Slideshare, and given it its own page here:

Open Access for Subject Specialists

I gave this presentation to a meeting of subject specialist librarians at the University of Michigan, as a part of a larger forum that included a brief statement from University Librarian Paul Courant, and presentations from a number of subject specialists who have worked with faculty on various open access endeavors such as re-releasing an out of print mathematics textbook for free online, depositing in our institutional repository, and doing outreach on author rights. The goal of my presentation was to help bring everyone up to speed about open access, define some of the confusing terms (gold OA vs. green OA, for example), and give people some tools to keep up with new developments. The rest of the forum was dedicated to talking about the many ways that librarians can engage with their faculty about OA.
