In February of this year, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) published a memo directing federal science agencies “to develop plans to make the published results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication… Such results include peer-reviewed publications and digital data.” Funding agency responses to this directive could dramatically change the process of scientific information exchange and fundamentally alter how scientific research is performed and archived at US universities and government laboratories. Each agency has been directed to submit a draft plan by August 22, 2013. We feel strongly that university faculty should be aware of the preliminary proposals that have been developed by the funding agencies and the potential impact these policy changes will have on the University research community, including faculty, librarians, staff, and students.
We are organizing a one day workshop at Stanford University where major stakeholders will present their perspectives on these impending policy changes. We are inviting speakers from scientific society and commercial publishers, university libraries, university researchers, open access advocates, companies involved in assembling large databases, and government agencies. We are extending special invitations to faculty from Stanford University; the University of California, Berkeley; and the University of California, San Francisco. We hope you will find time to attend the forum on this important topic.
The all-day forum will be held on Thursday, June 27 at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge on the Stanford University Campus.
Contact Sara Lefort for more information.

The great French symbolist artist Odilon Redon (1840–1916) often paired his art with literature to create an art of the imagination. Three of Redon’s most famous lithographic albums were inspired by Gustave Flaubert’s novel The Temptation of Saint Anthony (1874). Based on the legend of a third century monk who retreated to the desert to contemplate God, Flaubert’s story describes the fantastical events that transpire over the course of one night in which Anthony is assaulted by erotic visions and demonic apparitions. This exhibition presents all three of Redon’s albums, two from the Cantor’s collection and the third on loan—a total of 41 individual lithographs.
