  • My name is Urban Ericsson and I havebeenworking at the SLU library for 6 years. My main focus duringtheseyearshavebeenissuesconcerningscholarlycommunication and especiallyOpen Access. In thisproject I thinkwehave the oppurtunitytolearnmoreaboutwhatOpen Access can and willmean for both researchers and libraries.During 2014 two workshops will be conducted in collaboration between the SLU University Library and Makerere University Library. The overarching theme of the workshop is Open Access (OA). I haven’tyethad the first meeting with Andrew and Agnes whowill be my partners at the Makererelibrarybutwehopeto start the moredetailed planning in the coming weeks.
  • Step 1: Takes place in order to make it possible to combine with the library's first course (early 2014). Here the themes will be initiated and developed. It is done in collaboration with stakeholders at the University of Makerere. This opportunity is therefore primarily intended for SLU and Makerere University to identify local needs and knowledge around open access and digital university repositories. The results of step one also generates knowledge about attitudes towards open access, existing infrastructure, publication patterns and more. In this first step, it is mainly the local perspective and the conditions of open access that is in focus. Step 2: Run in combination with the library's second course (Autumn 2014). On this occasion, a larger invitation made ​​to reach representatives of OA on the African continent and other key stakeholders in the field of OA. The topics of the second workshop will rely on the outcome of Workshop 1. As a result the workshop develops knowledge of how the process of open access changes the requirements of the scientific communication for both the library and the researcher. Together, these topics help providing strategies for how to develop common goals for scholarly communication and to support research collaborations, networking and infrastructure, both locally and globally.
