COPPUL is pleased to sponsor up to $1000 to reimburse COPPUL libraries for the cost of live-webcasting and archiving presentations as well as other costs associated with 2015 Open Access Week events. In return for sponsorship, sponsored libraries agree to live-webcast speaker(s) to other COPPUL libraries and to make available an archived version for later viewing on the COPPUL website.

Who is eligible?

COPPUL libraries who have the facility to live-webcast talks to other COPPUL libraries and to archive talks for later viewing. 


The Selection Committee will consider applications by reviewing each in light of the following:  

-       Relevant to the 2015 OA week theme: Open for Collaboration

-       Importance of topic to other COPPUL libraries

-       Expected influence of speaker and originality of content

-       Connecting local development to international issue

-       Talks should ideally take place during the month of October 2015

-       Ability to live-webcast and archive

Library collaborations or joint programming for a single talk is acceptable as long as one of the libraries is a COPPUL library.
