Think globally, act locally: lessons learned from open access week 2010
The 2010 Open Access Week was over three times larger than in 2009, involving over 900 participants in 94 countries. The publicity accompanying Open Access Week provides libraries with an opportunity to communicate with their communities about issues of scholarly communication. In 2010 the University of Tennessee Libraries significantly expanded their participation to include five days of programming, a new library guide, and increased promotional efforts. This poster summarizes the takeaway lessons of the two subject librarians who led these activities. It includes tips on goal setting, with an emphasis on the dynamics of effective time management. It incorporates real life examples to provide guidance on when to take advantage of third party produced materials and how to leverage internal resources. Finally it highlights the need for ongoing assessment to build meaningful programming that meets the goals of the library
