For my contribution to blog posts for Open Access Week 2016, I wanted to write down some ideas I have had floating in my head in an attempt to better articulate them.

The Figshare Report released yesterday The State of Open Data inspired me to reflect on how researchers at IUPUI are sharing their data. Below, I describe three increasingly common scenarios for data sharing, including common considerations - what data, when, how/where, and what permissions.

When I think about Open Access, I think about it in terms of my teaching. As a librarian, teaching Information Literacy (the habits of mind to find, evaluate, and use information effectively and ethically) is a large part of what I, and my colleagues, do during a semester.

IUPUI University Library formally operationalized the use of open access in interlibrary loan (ILL) in 2009. Since then, I've written two articles studying borrowing requests received for open access materials and am now collaborating on a larger project with Collette Mak from the University of Notre Dame. All of my research has shown that any expectation that open access will negatively impact ILL is false.

Open access in science can mean much more than journal articles. Take, for example, the Ketterson lab, Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington. In the course of their over 30-year study on songbird biology the group has published over 100 articles.

Welcome to Open Access Week 2016. We're honoring the theme of this year's OA week, "Open in Action," by highlighting how we work to make open the norm at IUPUI. On each day of OA week we will post about how we're putting open in action.

As of September 1, 2016, I work with our Operations Team (OPS) as Product Owner (CSPO – Certified Scrum Product Owner) and IT Analyst Developer, so my official job title is Digital User Experience Librarian/ Product Owner and IT Analyst Developer. I believe that this new responsibility allows me to contribute more to development and improvement of scholarly communication systems in the backend.

This week I am wrapping up my last evidence summary for the (open access) Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Journal. I'm feeling quite nostalgic about it. I joined the evidence summary team in mid-2012 and have completed two 2-year commitments. It's been a key writing activity for most of my pre-tenure time here at UL.

Changes are happening! Since 2009, I have had responsibility for all things metadata at University Library. During the last 7 years, the Digital Libraries Team has gone through two name changes and an enormous amount of growth to become the Center for Digital Scholarship. Though it is somewhat bittersweet for me, the current level of productivity and diversity of projects coming out of the Center made this the right time to hand off metadata management responsibilities to someone for whom metadata would be her sole responsibility.
