Thursday, October 15, 2015 
Location- Javits Room
1:00pm-1:45pm
Shafeek Fazal,  Associate Director, Library Technology, Discovery and Digital Initiatives and Darren Chase, Scholarly Communications Librarian, Discovery and Digital Initiatives
Open Access & Data Management: In terms of scholarly literature, open access applies to digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. What it means to academia and research is that the primary barrier to access, price, is removed from the equation, allowing free access to peer-reviewed, scholarly works, books, and just about any other electronic print material with the designation.  Research Data Service provides guidance and support for all aspects of the data lifecycle, from planning data management strategy during the proposal phase through preserving data at the conclusion of a project.

2:00pm-2:45pm
Jamie Saragossi, Health Sciences Collection Development and Outreach Librarian
Health Literacy and Access to Consumer Health Information: This presentation will define health literacy and demonstrate initiatives being taken to provide access to free, high quality health resources and educate the public about the importance of their role in their own health care. An outline of future plans of Stony Brook Health Sciences Library to address health literacy and consumer health-care will also be discussed.

Redesigning a Library Space: While working at Teacher’s College, construction of a “learning theater” had begun on the fourth floor of the library building. Laura Costello will go over the community engagement process for the redesign as well as the specs and purpose of the new space.

Marketing the Library to Departments: Many departments are unaware of the range of services offered by the library.
