Publishing in an open access repository gives your research global reach. Wide dissemination of your work can mean more citations and more impact. Getting your scholarly work published is as easy as uploading a paper to a website. Find out how Scholarship@Western can benefit you and how it can help you meet the requirements of funding agencies for open access.
A light lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Tina Beynen.
Joanne Paterson has an BMus in Music History and Literature and MA in Musicology from The University of Calgary, and an MScILS from Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland. She began her library career in the Music Division of the National Library of Canada where she catalogued sound recordings and music scores. Her metadata specialty allowed her to volunteer for digital preservation projects, such as the metadata necessary for the implementation of a TDR (Trusted Digital Repository) and a project to re-purpose publisher metadata. This led to a position in the Digital Office, in the newly formed Library and Archives Canada (BACLAC), where she managed staff in the acquisition of digital objects, Web-Harvesting, and Theses Canada, the ETD program (Electronic Thesis and dissertations). She came to Western just over two years ago to work in Library Information Resources Management, where she performs a diverse set of roles including metadata management, advising on digital projects, and managing the Institutional Repository.
