Part I: Public Access: Practical Ways to Assist Faculty to Comply with Public Access Policies

90 Minutes: This webinar will provide an overview on the resources that are available to assist faculty with adhering to federal public access policies for data publications, and provide resources to promote proper data management during all stages of the research lifecycle. We'll explore the services that may be readily available within your own institutions, and additional resources that could easily be implemented.

Audience: Research Administrators, grants managers, librarians, research administration leadership, and others who work directly with faculty.

Level: Intermediate

Prerequisites: attendees should already have awareness of various public access policies, and may understand their intent, but want to gain a deeper understanding of them and learn best practices for implementation at their institutions.

Handouts will be available 24 hours before the live webinar.

We recommend testing your browser as soon as possible in case you need to contact your IT department for help.
  • It is recommended that you use a PC or MAC with an updated Internet Browser.
  • Make sure you have pop-ups blockers disabled in your Internet browser settings.
  • Make sure that your internet browser is Active X enabled.
  • Wifi is not recommended. The problem with WiFi is signal strength can vary causing bandwidth to increase or decrease.
  • We recommend a wired connection. A wired connection gives a consistent signal and consistent bandwidth. A wired connection provides a better experience.
  • It's better for organizations with low bandwidth to only have the webinar running on 1 computer in a conference room than having 10 individual people running the session on 10 computers at their desks.
  • Audio (sound) is projected through your computer speakers. Be sure your computer is equipped with speakers so you can hear the presenters.
