Open Access @ UNT -- UNT OPEN ACCESS SYMPOSUM 2015
"The 2015 symposium will examine aspects of how the law relates to the open access movement, including copyright law, privacy law, access to government information, and access to and use of legal literature online. Copyright and privacy law are continually evolving with new developments in technology and society, and there are efforts both at universities and in private organizations to develop not only collections of resources but also tools to discover and use them. This symposium will bring together librarians, scholars, and anyone interested in improving the public’s access to legal and government information. Broad issues of ensuring public access to legal, government, and other varieties of public sphere information will be explored in the 2015 symposium. Presentations will include topics in IR deposit of public and legal information, web harvesting and preservation of the government web domain, the Uniform Electronic Legal Materials Act, and federal mandates for preserving research data. This symposium typically brings together researchers, librarians, administrators, and other OA stakeholders with an interest in engaging with the broad topic of Open Access. While the schedule of sessions is already filling up, there may be opportunities for additional presenters who are interested in participating; contact us directly if interested."
