SUNY Albany Open Access

Open Access Week 2011 Events
The University at Albany University Libraries and Eastern New York Chapter Association of College and Research Libraries are celebrating Open Access Week 2011 with exhibits and a program of activities on the afternoon of Wednesday October 26.
 
Wednesday October 26
12:00 – 1:30pm
Brown bag lunch and discussion of open access
Science Library, Standish Room, 3rd Floor
Bring a lunch and the libraries will provide drinks.  Discussion moderator will be Irina Holden, Information Literacy and Science Outreach Librarian. R.S.V.P  Lorre Smith
 
2:00 – 3:30pm
“Open Science, Free software, and Citizen Astronomers” Dr. David Hogg
Science Library, Standish Room, 3rd Floor
Being open in scientific research — sharing code and ideas before publication, for example–can yield huge direct benefits for scientific investigators.  This is most true when ideas are cheap but execution is expensive; these conditions are met in most (but not all) scientific fields.  One of the big side effects of extreme openness is that it makes it easy for outsiders (non-traditionally trained or self-trained) scientists to contribute meaningfully to research.  Dr. Hogg will give examples from work by his group. A reception will follow the talk in the Standish Room.
 
4:00 – 4:45
Tour of College of Nanoscale Sciences and Engineering
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany – State University of New York (SUNY) is a global education, research, development and technology deployment resource dedicated to preparing the next generation of scientists and researchers in nanotechnology.
R.S.V.P. Lorre Smith by October 21, 2011.
