Thursday, October 25, 12 – 1pm, University Library UL1116

In celebration of international Open Access Week, University Library is collaborating with IUB SLIS and IUPUI SLIS to host a brown bag about real experiences with OA. How does Open Access really affect the research and publishing process? What are the pros and cons of Open Access? Join your colleagues and professors for an informal discussion and Q&A session, as they share their experiences with Open Access.


Join Dean David Lewis of University Library, Library Faculty, Teaching/Research Faculty, and other IU SLIS students (remotely) in a discussion about Open Access.

Advice from a Search Committee Member

University librarian William Weare, who is always doing things to help out ALISS, recently sent me this article from Library Journal giving tips to job seekers from the perspective of someone who has served on many search committees. It is full of practical advice on how to stand out and how not to get thrown in the trash pile immediately.

Goodbye Dr. Preer!

Sad puppy is sad

In case you weren’t aware, the irreplaceable professor Dr. Jean Preer will be retiring at the end of this year. Luckily for us, she has agreed to give a Last Lecture to inspire us before striding boldly off into the sunset. Details on the when and where will be announced soon, but she would like to hear from us students on what we would most like to hear and learn from her. Thoughts?
