Affordable Textbooks Symposium

With sponsorship from the Indiana University Office of Scholarly Publishing and UITS, IUPUI University Library is hosting a half-day symposium on affordable course materials. The National Center for Education Statistics estimates that IUPUI undergraduates paid $1,204.00 on books and supplies in the 2016/2017 academic year. The high cost of textbooks contributes to student debt, low retention rates, and negatively impacts the quality of student life.

Renovation Progress: January 19, 2018

IUPUI University Library has been undergoing a 3rd and 4th floor renovation since the end of the Fall 2017 Semester. As of Friday, January 19, 2018, carpets have been ripped away to make room for our new modern floors. Ceilings tiles have been removed to make space for our new lighting in specialty study areas for group collaborative and quiet study. There is a lot of progress on the third floor. Walls are being constructed that make up the skeleton of new specially designed silent study rooms, and new carpet is being installed.

The Green OA Disconnect: Attitudes or Actions

In November, an article that I wrote with two of my colleagues was published in the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication (http://doi.org/10.7710/2162-3309.2169). The article reports some of the results of a wide-ranging survey of faculty attitudes regarding issues in scholarly communication.
