Summary of first meeting of the Committee on Public Access to Scholarly Materials:
In attendance: Dev Sinha (Chair), Deb Carver (Dean of the Library, ex-officio), Dave Hubin (Liason with the President's office, ex-officio), Peter Gilkey (Senate President, ex-officio), J. Q. Johnson, Eric Priest, Gordon Sayre.
Committee members introduced themselves and then briefly shared their view of the merits of having a University policy on Public Access to Scholarly Materials, what such a policy might look like, and the process for formulating such a policy. The following points were made.
The committee discussed different processes and reached a tentative consensus that proceeding through departments rather than centrally would be more likely to get both wide participation in the process and higher levels of compliance once a policy is adopted. We thus plan to engage groups such as the Council of Deans, the Department Heads meeting within the CAS and the Graduate Council before formulating a campus-wide strategy.
