The open access movement began in the 1990s and has since been adopted by an increasing number of funding agencies, academic institutions, publishers, and individual researchers. If you haven’t encountered open access yet, you probably will at some point in your career. This presentation will provide an overview of the main ideas behind open access, give a brief history, look at the recent OA policy development, and help you understand your role and responsibility in the changing landscape of Scholarly Communication. Most importantly, the new services of the Library’s Scholarly Communications Office will be introduced to help faculty members comply with funding agency requirements and Princeton University’s Open Access policy.

The collaborators behind the new Interactive Digital Archive of Rare ABC Books, featuring selections from the Cotsen Children’s Library, will discuss the vision, planning, and work of the project, which was supported with a course development grant from the Digital Humanities Initiative and has been integrated into ENG 385: Children’s Literature. They will also describe a special course component in which students receive training in the methods and materials of the digital humanities, including text encoding.

Speakers:
Bill Gleason is Professor and Chair of the Department of English. A specialist in American literature and culture, his research and teaching interests range from the 18th century to the present, with particular emphasis on the late 19th/early 20th century, and include popular culture, material culture, environmental studies, and the history of the book.

Andrea Immel, Curator of the Cotsen Children’s Library since 1995, organizes international conferences, gallery and virtual exhibitions, and acquires materials for the collection.  She contributed chapters to volumes 5 and 6 of the Cambridge History of the Book in Britain, and co-edited Childhood and Children’s Books in Early Modern Europe, and the Cambridge Companion to Children’s Literature.

Ben Johnston is manager of OIT’s Humanities Resource Center in East Pyne.  Since 2005, Ben has worked with Princeton educators, students, and researchers across the Humanities and Social Sciences to facilitate the use of digital assets, technology tools, databases, and digital video in teaching and research. Ben is also an active member of Princeton Digital Humanities Initiative.

Clifford Wulfman is coordinator of Library Digital Initiatives and Director of the Blue Mountain Project. In addition to many years’ experience with text encoding, Cliff has published numerous articles on topics in the digital humanities and is co-author, with Robert Scholes, of Modernism in the Magazines: An Introduction.

video platform video management video solutionsvideo player

Topic: Turning Freshmen into Scientists: Hardware, Software, and Hands-on Technology in the FieldPS-FroshScientists-image2-web
Speakers: Adam Maloof and Frederik J. Simons

Time: Thursday, April 24, 4:30pm – 5:30pm (SPECIAL TIME!)
Location: HRC Classroom, 012 East Pyne, Lower Level

Refreshments will be provided. To register for this session: http://bit.ly/Frosh-Sci
(Registration is not required for attendance, however refreshments may be limited.)

For six years FRS 145/149/171/187 has taught students to define a hypothesis, collect data to test that hypothesis, analyze their data using quantitative techniques, and present their work in the form of scientific prose and figures.  Technology plays a central role in this mission, in the form of field instrumentation such as radar, magnetometry and GPS to collect data, and software such as Matlab and ArcGIS to analyze and present data. In this session Professors Adam Maloof and Frederick Simons will detail the lessons from their six year journey developing and refining their curriculum for turning Freshmen into scientists.

Adam Maloof is an Associate Professor of Geosciences. He is a field geologist who studies the rock record of the coevolution of animals and climate.

Frederik J. Simons is an Associate Professor of Geosciences. He is a geophysicist who specializes in the analysis of data from seismological networks and satellite gravity missions to study the structure and evolution of the Earth’s continents and their ice cover.
