Those of you interested in Citizen Science – register for the webinar on 10 June “Citizen Science At Universities: Trends, Guidelines and Recommendations”. To attend the webinar, please, register here.
ABOUT THE WEBINAR:
A number of European recommendations – including the League of European Research Universities (LERU)’s advice paper “Citizen Science at Universities: Trends, Guidelines and Recommendations” – highlight the importance of creating a single point of contact for citizen science within the institution.
In this webinar, organised by LIBER`s Citizen Science Working Group, four speakers will share what they are doing to devise just the right solution through a three-fold approach:
- Current trends within Citizen Science at universities;
- A template for a Citizen Science Single Contact Point which your institution could start developing;
- A snapshot of the forthcoming Research Librarian’s Guide to Citizen Science and the possible roles research libraries could adopt to move the citizen science activities forward.
Examples of UC San Diego Citizen Science Programs, Initiatives, and Resources
- Call for Citizen Scientists to Contribute to COVID-19 Studies
- Citizen Science and the Fishes of La Jolla
- Citizen Science Program
- San Diego Citizen Science Network
- UC San Diego Library Citizen Science Research Guide
For UC San Diego researchers and citizen scientists interested in collecting, curating, preserving, and communicating the data you produce – contact the UC San Diego Library Scholarly Communications and Research Data Curation Program.
What was going to be an in-person workshop co-sponsored by the UC San Diego Library and the Teaching and Learning Commons on campus June 3, 2020 at 10:00am has now been moved online, like just about everything else. We will be sending out a link to register or contact us for access to the virtual classroom.
This workshop is even more important as we anticipate that we will remain in distance learning mode until at least the fall, and want to do all we can to ensure continuity of access and affordability for our students.
While many of the benefits of using openly licensed materials remain constant, their importance is amplified as students are facing increased bandwidth and financial obstacles.
Benefits of Open Educational Resources (OER):
- Immediate and sustained access. Students, faculty, and researchers are dispersed across the globe. OER do not require VPN or subscription access. Students will have access at the start of their course and well beyond for future reference.
- Free to use. OER can be read, adapted, modified, and shared at no cost to the reader. Freedom from financial burdens are especially important and appreciated during this time of economic instability.
- Adaptability. Many instructors are faced with loss of access, for a variety of reasons, to their teaching materials as we’ve had to rapidly shift to online teaching. Quality educational materials can be adapted to fit your needs if they are openly licensed.
Workshop instructors: Allegra Swift, Dominique Turnbow, and Laura Schwartz. UC San Diego Library.
Join an existing session even or propose a new one even as the event is ongoing. Looking forward to learning from the international #OpenPublish community!
Open Publishing Fest celebrates communities developing open creative, scholarly, technological, and civic publishing projects. Together, we find new ground to share our ideas.
This is at once a collaborative and distributed event. Sessions are hosted by individuals and organizations around the world as panel discussions, fireside chats, demonstrations, and performances. We connect those points to bring them in conversation with one another and map out what’s next.
We seek to build networks of resilience and care for people working on new ways to develop and share knowledge.
Join us by proposing a session. Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis up to and throughout the fest.About Open Publish and Open Publish Calendar
May 4-8 | noon to 5 PM Eastern Time
For the first time, the Library Publishing Coalition will host the Forum virtually. Registration is free and open to all, although workshops and experimental sessions will have a limited number of participants.
The Library Publishing Forum is an annual conference bringing together representatives from libraries engaged in (or considering) publishing initiatives to define and address major questions and challenges; to identify and document collaborative opportunities; and to strengthen and promote this community of practice.Library Publishing Coalition, Library Publishing Forum
When: March 5, 2020 at 10:00 am – noon
Where: UC San Diego Engaged Teaching Hub
What: Research shows that students do better in their courses when course materials are immediately accessible and not cost prohibitive. There is evidence suggesting that faculty (and students) are not satisfied with assigned textbooks and other curricular resources.
Find out what your options are for locating, adapting, and developing course materials that work for you, your students, and your future students while contributing your discipline or subject area.

Webinar 11 am -12 pm
Campus progress update 12 – 12:30 pm
The UC San Diego Library’s Scholarly Communication and the BES Training and Organizational Development are hosting a webinar on Open Educational Resources #OER . Directly following the webinar, we will share the progress we have made with campus partners and give an update about upcoming faculty education workshops.
Webinar description : Open Educational Resources (OER) initiatives in higher education are increasingly led by academic libraries. A lot of these projects are overseen by librarians who may or may not have OER as part of their job responsibilities yet they make it work because of their strong commitment to making education accessible to all learners.
Questions? Contact us on twitter or through email (linked here)
During Open Access Week, the UC San Diego Library will be kicking off our scholarly communication awareness campaign to engage the campus in issues related to knowledge production and information access. We’ll have content displayed on our digital signage as well as physical swag and fact sheets at information desks in the library. As always, contact your librarian (or us) with questions or if you are interested in taking action! Follow us on Twitter for more info or just to engage!

11 am – 12 pm on 22 Oct 2019 in the Geisel Library Dunst Classroom : ACRL webinar: “Open for Students and Educators: Open Educational Resources Level the Playing Field“
Open educational resources (OERs) are not usually a hard sell for students. But what about educators? How do they benefit from having access to resources that are licensed openly? And how can we, as librarians, guide faculty in adopting and adapting OERs? This free webcast will cover essential OER questions and topics, including:
• What does OER mean?
• How is OER helpful not only to students, but to educators as well?
• Locating and adapting OER (or how to interpret Creative Commons licensing attached to OERs)
9 am – 10:00 am on 24 Oct 2019 in the Biomed Library Bldg Events Room: “How the University of California Libraries Drive the Open Access Movement”
