Kresge Library is excited to showcase the artistic nature photography of the talented Tracy Gordon.
“Growing up in Vermont, (including attending a one room school house), instilled much of my respect and awareness for the beauty that is around me every day. In my early middle school days I was inspired by a teacher who had the “photography bug”. I picked up a camera in my early teens and started shooting pictures, noticing how light and the surrounding environment would affect my picture. As I travel from place to place I am inspired to capture small moments of that beauty that often are over looked as we speed through life. I moved from Vermont to Florida and I currently work as a graphic designer, pre-press specialist and side line as a food stylist. I spend half of my year in Florida and half in Vermont.” – Tracy Gordon
If you have artwork or know of someone who would like to exhibit with us, please contact us at Kresge.Library@dartmouth.edu.

Learn about new tools and opportunities during Open Access Week with information tables and workshops around campus all week long!
Thayer MacLean Atrium
Baker Library Main Hall
Fairchild Tower Pendulum
||Know Your Copyrights
||Pathways to Open Research
Stop by the information tables to learn about open access, publishing, copyright, author rights, open education and more; pick up materials; and make something Open! We will be talking about support for open access journal publishing fees (which is provided by the Compact on Open Access Publishing Equity fund), the Dartmouth Author’s Amendment, the Faculty Open Access Policy Resolution, and current trends in publishing and scholarly communication.
In addition, the Know Your Copyrights workshop will help you answer the question: “Can I post my publications in full text on….my web site, my departmental website, the institutional web site, my course site, sharing sites such as Mendeley, Academia.edu, ResearchGate or.. ?” Please sign up here as lunch is provided.
In Pathways to Open Research, Dr. Kes Schroer will wrap up Open Access Week events by sharing her experiences at the “Open Science for Synthesis” program and offer insights on the power of open access, open data and open source for rapid, reproducible scholarship. Following Dr. Schroer’s remarks, we will have a roundtable discussion about all things open, including music, art, literature, education, and more. Please sign-up as lunch is provided.

New ACS journal to launch in 2015
Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi, Editor in Chief
ACS Central Science, the new, fully open access journal announced by the American Chemical Society earlier this year, moved closer to launch readiness by naming its Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi, a researcher in organic chemistry and chemical biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Bertozzi is also an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
ACS Central Science will publish only 100-200 articles a year across the entire expanse of chemistry and chemistry-related fields, including areas of pure chemistry such as organic, inorganic, physical chemistry; and interdisciplinary fields such as chemical biology, life sciences and biomedicine, computational and theoretical chemistry, nanotechnology, physics and materials science, engineering, computer science, energy and atmospheric chemistry. All articles will be freely available online immediately upon publication, and without publishing charges levied on authors. Manuscripts will be accepted as of November, with the first issue to be published in early 2015.
These new journals join two new journals launched by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and published in partnership with Wiley, both also highly interdisciplinary and fully open access, – Earth’s Future, and the recently announced Earth and Space Science, which will publish its first articles later this year. [See our earlier post about AGU's range of open access initiatives, and read AGU's May 2014 announcement of Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s John Orcutt as Editor of Earth and Space Science.]
