White House directive seeks to expand access to publicly-funded research

White House directive seeks to expand access to publicly-funded research

Last month, the White House announced a new directive in response to a We the People petition (which received over 65,000 signatures) that requested free access to the results of taxpayer-funded research.

The White House’s directive stipulates that federal agencies with a budget over $100 million dollars per year (a category which includes most major scientific agencies of the federal government such as NASA, NIH, NOAA, NSF and similar) make such research freely available within 1 year of initial publication. The agencies covered by the new directive have 6 months to develop a plan of action to comply.

Webinar: Rethinking Library Resources

Rethinking Library Resources: Sustainable Print Collections in a Digital Age
Date: Wednesday, March 6, 2012
Presenter: Rick Lugg

Library shelves are increasingly full, and more books are being published than ever. Yet surprisingly few are being used. In October 2010, Cornell University Libraries determined that 55% of its monographs had not circulated since 1990. Circulation per user continues to decline steadily. Meanwhile, library administrators seek to expand space for group study, information commons, writing centers, and cafes. Much of the available space is currently occupied by low-use print collections, stored and maintained at an estimated annual cost of $4.26 per volume in open stacks, $.86 per volume in high-density storage. For these reasons, print collections face increased scrutiny.
