If you live in New Orleans, you know that the weather can change drastically day to day, especially in the winter. I’ve compiled a few photos from our Loyola University Photographs collection to illustrate the weather one might experience in a single week in January. Happy Monday, everyone! Stay warm! (or dry, or cool, depending..)

Open Access Week 2016
This year Open Access (OA) Week is October 24-30. This is the ninth year libraries, authors and others around the world are observing OA Week. The theme for 2016 is “Open in Action.” As the OA Week website says: “International Open Access Week has always been about action, and this year’s theme encourages all stakeholders to take concrete steps to make their own work more openly available and encourage others to do the same. From posting pre-prints in a repository to supporting colleagues in making their work more accessible, this year’s Open Access Week will focus on moving from discussion to action in opening up our system for communicating research”
Open Access is a new model of scholarly publication based on sharing.
Open Access means free, immediate access to scholarly material in full.
It’s a reversal of the old model, where university faculty and researchers write articles, publish them in commercial journals, and the library has to buy them back for other faculty and students to read.
That’s paying for it twice–-in the researcher’s salary and the library’s money! And the publisher owns the article and can decide when and how it’s used and reused-–the writer has very little further control over its use. The Internet provides a quick and simple way to distribute information to the world at a minimal cost, and is paid by organizations and individuals who want to see their research get the widest possible audience. Universities and libraries worldwide are getting behind this new model of scholarly publication.
Open Access Week is a time to learn about this powerful new model. Find more information at http://www.openaccessweek.org.
