Upcoming Events

The UC Open Access Policies


Tue, May 22, 2018 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM




In 2013, the University of California Academic Senate adopted an Open Access Policy to ensure that all research articles published by UC faculty would be accessible to the public at no charge. In 2015, the Presidential Open Access Policy was issued that expanded the rights and responsibilities of the 2013 policy to all non-senate lecturers and academics, researchers, scholars, and staff.

This 90-minute workshop will cover the rights and responsibilities described in both Open Access Policies, and will also feature a demonstration of the UC Open Access Publication Management System.

Data Management Plans and Research Data Curation


Wed, May 23, 2018 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM




Preparing a data management plan is not only a requirement for many funding agencies but also encourages successful handling of collected data across a project’s lifecycle and beyond. This workshop will cover everything that goes into preparing a well-formed data management plan, and will also include an overview of using the DMPTool, a service provided by the California Digital Library.

Following best practices for managing your research data can ensure it will be available to other researchers in the long term. Come learn how the Library can help you with research data best practices and metadata creation, data sharing, data archiving, and using the data services provided by the California Digital Library.
