Opening the Archive: Open Access at the Harry Ransom Center
The Harry Ransom Center is among the nation's finest research libraries; its extensive holdings provide a unique record of the creative processes of thousands of writers and artists. In 2015, the Center launched its open access policy, removing permission and use fees for its online collections believed to be in the public domain. Accompanying the release of the policy, the Center launched Project REVEAL, making available 22,000 pages of manuscript content of some of the best-known names from American and English literature to be used for any purpose without restriction. This update will focus on the Center's open access initiatives.

Presenter: Elizabeth Gushee (Harry Ransom Center, The University of Texas at Austin)

Increasing Openness and Connections throughout the Scientific Workflow
We can improve scientific communication to increase efficiency in the accumulation of knowledge. One way to do this is through practical change; science will benefit from improving technologies to document and connect the entire lifecycle of research projects. This presentation will focus on the practical aspects, illustrated through the efficiencies gained via the Open Science Framework and its add-on connections to Dataverse and Figshare. The presentation will specifically talk about how research support teams (ie. data librarians, repository managers, and others) can utilize these tools to help their users improve daily workflows.

Presenters: Dan Valen (Figshare), Elizabeth Quigley (Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science)

Open Access Institutional Repositories and Social Justice: What Kind of Impact Are We Having?
Open access institutional repositories have the potential to be tangible expressions of the missions of academic institutions to work for social justice and make a difference in the world. Reference to such missions is a common selling point to secure funding or deposit materials in a repository, but is not always an on-going measurement in assessment for repositories. This presentation describes how to conduct such assessment and understand how repositories impact social justice projects.

Presenters: Margaret Heller (Loyola University Chicago), Franny Gaede (Butler University)

Self-deposit of Geospatial Scientific Data
Sharing scientific data is increasingly valuable for reproducible science, furthering investigation, and innovation. To this end, repositories facilitate data sharing by making scholarly data available. We are at an impasse, however. Librarian-mediated approaches to self-deposit of scientific data are very resource-intensive, and the repository services provided to researchers are often limited. Self-deposit is quite a challenging use case as it encompasses data preparation, metadata description, upload, visualization, annotation, sharing, publication, access, rights, preservation, citation, and discovery services. This editorial suggests we revisit the value proposition we make for self-deposit and mitigate its resource-intensive nature.

Presenter: Darren Hardy (Stanford University)

It's All About Communication: Implementing ORCiD iDs at a Large Research University
How do you implement and advocate for researcher identifiers (specifically, ORCID iDs) for all faculty at a large research institution? How does such an implementation fit in with a research library's research data initiatives? This presentation will cover best practices for integrating ORCID iDs in campus systems like Pure and the institutional repository, as well as dealing with diverse campus stakeholders, researcher fears, and thorny issues around surveillance concerns and "tracking".

Presenter: Alix Keener (University of Michigan)

Digital Preservation and Data Repositories: Just what does "long-term" mean, anyway?
As the University of Washington Libraries began writing policy for the institution's data repository currently under development, we found ourselves in a quandary: "how long is long enough?" Within the framework mandated by the US Government's Office of Science and Technology Policy's (OSTP) memo on access to federally funded research, and given the myriad challenges of digital preservation, what are libraries committing to when planning a repository to provide long-term access to research data? This snapshot will stir conversation on a topic that needs to be addressed within a community jumping head first into the development of institutional data repositories.

Presenters: Mahria Lebow (University of Washington), Moriah Neils (University of Washington)
