COPPUL Sponsorship of 2016 Open Access (OA) Week Speaker Events

Deadline: June 15, 2016 at 5 PM PDT

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 2016 Open Access Week speaker events. In return for sponsorship, sponsored libraries agree to live-webcast their events to other COPPUL libraries and to make available the event recordings for later viewing.

Who is eligible?:

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


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

 -    Importance of the topic to other COPPUL libraries

-    Expected influence of speaker and originality of content

-    Local development in light of international issues

-    Ability to live-webcast and archive

-   Speaker events should ideally take place during the month of October 2016.

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

Selection Committee:

Members of the COPPUL Scholarly Communications Working Group or a subset of the Working Group will review applications and select award winners. Applications are due on June 15, 2016 at 5 PM PDT. Winners will be notified by July 1, 2016. All presentations must be archived by December 31, 2016.
