Open Access Week, Oct. 24-30, 2011

"Open Access – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. Open Access has the potential to maximize research investments, increase the exposure and use of published research, facilitate the ability to conduct research across available literature, and enhance the overall advancement of scholarship."

Open access is supported at UC Berkeley by the Berkeley Research Impact Initiative (BRII). BRII subsidizes fees charged to authors who select open access or paid access publication.

Also posted are selected open access articles written by UCB School of Public Health researchers.

Trial: TLS Historical Archive 1902-2006

From now until November 11, please take advantage of our trial of the TLS Historical Archive 1902-2006 (note that you will be redirected when you click on this link), which extends the coverage that The Library is getting from its current subscription to the TLS Centenary Archive (1902-1990).

Reproduces all content published in the Times Literary Supplement from 1902-2006 and identifies the names of the reviewers, important since reviews were not signed until 1974.

Please send comments to Michaelyn Burnette (mburnett[at sign]library).
