  CIL: Open Access and the Federal Gov’t
R. James King
Ruth Hooker Library, Naval Research Lab

Background – more and more competition for scarce R&D dollars, research labs like his measure productivity not by widgets built, but by publications.

Open Access Movement-
“movement” because almost religious fever
Goal: free access to all scholarly lit to enhance research
Gold vs. Green

He’s proposing a “blue” model
- funding focus – “capturing all published literature created by a funding agency”
- (this would affect my place of work*)
- less problem with copyright bcs maintain traditional publishing routes, but use this for capturing final product not pre-print(?)
- using agency repositories
- available to the gov’t but only partially available to the public where possible – ok this causes a big problem with all of the non-governmental research organizations (universities, non-profits, for-profits) who will have an unfair disadvantage when competing with the gov’t research labs who will have free access to all gov’t funded lit (proposing – just suggesting – should be that if you’re funded to do gov’t work, that you have the same access to these resources)

Gov’t and copyright
See overview at cendi.dtic.mil/publications/04-8copyright.html

Their library –
Give the customer the illusion that they have everything they need on their lab bench laptop

They locally load content. 7.6M+ articles
- light archive undergoing testing and migration, not a dark archive

Capturing corporate knowledge
NRL Publications/Products Database
- from print bibliographies
- now use affiliation/address search in WoS
- 1920s-1980s bound reprints (we used to have these, too, but no more) – final version so unlike with pre-prints, you don’t need version control. Also can go back in time
- no author participation required – don’t have to force them to give you a pre-print before they get the kudos from the publishing (requires a lot of trust)
- expertise locator
- “km is an IT person’s attempt at being a librarian” (funny, a lot of KM people *are* librarians!)

CENDI effort to better mark Gov’t employee work that can’t be copyrighted

UPDATE: * inserted above -- my place of work means MY place of work (as in Christina's), not NRL but somewhere else that you might be able to figure out if you're a human and looking at my blog (or perhaps our slides from our session :) ) --- in general I set off my commentary with () or [] -- I guess when I do stream of consciousness, I should better separate what's coming from my mind from what's coming from the speaker... sorry!
