Fall Scholarly Communication Symposium: Scholarly Uses of the Internet in Science – Friday, November 1 at 10:00 a.m., Murray Room, Lauinger Library

with panelists Professor Anne Rosenwald, Department of Biology,
Professor Lisa Singh, Department of Computer Science,
Professor S. James Gates, Jr., University of Maryland Department of Physics
and moderator Professor Janet Mann, Departments of Biology and Psychology, Vice Provost for Research

This symposium brings together a panel of experts in computer science, biology and physics to discuss the ways that scientists use the Internet to create knowledge, disseminate and share data and communicate ideas, opinions and concepts. With examples from their own experience, the panelists will highlight some of the greatest opportunities and challenges new technologies offer the sciences.  We will also explore the issue of whether the use of the Internet for scholarly communication in science differs from its use in the social sciences or humanities. 

RSVP by October 28 to Bill Olsen, Social Sciences Bibliographer, at wco4@georgetown.edu or 202-687-9012.

Meet and Greet DigitalGeorgetown! – Thursday, November 14 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Murray Room, Lauinger Library

Come meet with staff from the University Library, Bioethics Research Library and Law Library to learn about DigitalGeorgetown, the home of the Georgetown University Institutional Repository and digital collections. DigitalGeorgetown is a key component of the Library’s drive towards Open Access and serves as a permanent, safe and free place to make your scholarship available around the globe.

This is an informal drop-in reception with hands-on demonstrations. Refreshments will be served.
