Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of Libraries at the University of Kansas (KU) has been Instrumental in the development of a faculty-initiated open access policy adopted by KU. Haricombe is a founding member of the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI), and serves as the KU Provost's designate for open access implementation at KU. She is a member of the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition (SPARC) Steering Committee and serves on the South African Research Library Consortium’s Executive Management Team. Prior to joining KU in 2006, she was dean of libraries at Bowling Green State University. She holds doctoral and master’s degrees in library and information science from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign.

Lorraine Haricombe will present a talk entitled, “Open Access: An evolving alternative or a maturing threat?” Although open access offers an alternative to the traditional publishing model that provides unrestricted internet access to peer-reviewed scholarly articles it has garnered significant discussion and debate. No longer at the beginning of the open access movement and not yet at the end, we have a decade of experience to assess advancements in the open access ecosystem and the work ahead of us to realize the goal of unrestricted internet access to new scholarship.

RSVP to for lunch (vegetarian or carnivorous) by October 17th.

If you prefer to opt out of lunch you are welcome to drop-in, no RSVP necessary.
