CUNY Discussion/Meetings/Working Group?

  • Hi All,

    After this year’s Open Access Week and the CUNY IT conference, I’m finding more and more folks who are interested to both learn more about OA and have more conversations across CUNY. Are there people on this list who would like to start meeting in person and brainstorming about further actions (CUNY mandates, workshops, Open Access Week, etc.)?

  • Sure, I’d be interested.

    Me too, needless to say! (Maura and I have an idea brewing…)

    I’m down. Academic Commons is great, but one of the things CUNY IT drove home is how much energy and knowledge transfer comes out of meeting in person. So definitely let’s get together!

    How does intersession look for all of you? Maybe we could pick a date and meet somewhere central (GC?) and make some flyers for folks who aren’t (yet) on the commons, etc.?

    I’m interested. I’m free during intersession.

    I am interested in meeting during intersession. Perhaps a Doodle poll with dates could be sent to those who replied?

    Hi Alycia, Somehow the link does’nt open to show the dates. Thanks for checking on it.

    Oops, here’s the correct link with a few dates/suggestions: http://www.doodle.com/ytpkywm7vcyug7yz

    So, meeting tomorrow (Monday 9)? Seemingly it is the date that will do fro most people.

    I would prefer if we could we postpone until the 18th–It seems that would still work for many of us?

    I am here today, also available Wed 1/18 at 3pm. Someone (Alycia?) needs to call it. Also, I don’t see a room/meeting place mentioned.

    I think we should go ahead with 1/18 at 3pm. Sorry about the scheduling snafus–intersession is getting away from me already.

    Polly has graciously reserved a space on in the GC library for our meeting (the room is located at the back of the computer lab on the lower level of the library–folks should remember to bring CUNY ID and enter on the 1st floor, then go down a level and back into the corner of the floor).

    Please feel free to spread the word to other CUNY folks–I would love to have this be an open discussion where we could talk a bit of nuts and bolts about OA, free culture, etc. but also about what has (or hasn’t) been happening surrounding OA on our campuses, and actions we might take in the future to educate and mobilize.

    See you all on the 18th!

    Hi everyone,

    We had a great meeting yesterday — check out the notes in the Docs section of the group (click the Docs link on the left navbar here).

    We’re going to try and meet monthly to keep the energy and ideas moving! Our next meeting will be:

    Friday February 17th, 3-5pm
    @ the Mina Rees Library at the CUNY Graduate CenterRoom C196.05 on the concourse level

    (the room is located at the back of the computer lab on the lower level of the library–folks should remember to bring CUNY ID and enter on the 1st floor, then go down a level and back into the corner of the floor)

    Hope to see you there!
    Best,
    Maura

    I’m really sorry that I wasn’t able to make it yesterday. Thanks to the person who took such careful notes about the discussion. That resolution from the faculty senate at Virginia Community University that urges tenure and promotion committees to take special note of efforts to publish in OA venues is priceless. I haven’t read the resolutions and mandates that have come out from other schools. Is this a common request in those resolutions and mandates?
