Open access publishing opportunities

Open Access publishing leads to more discovery, more downloads, and more global access to Purdue’s giant leaps in research. At Libraries, we see open access partnerships with major journal publishers as a key part of our goal to create more equitable, sustainable publishing options for Purdue authors, and in turn, to foster more equitable access to their research. Information and resources on open access journals, publishing, and funding is available on our Open Access Publishing Partnerships libguide.

Library instruction

Library instruction often includes a class presentation or lecture on using library resources specific to a course, might mean a librarian is embedded in a course, or a librarian as instructor-of-record for a course. Research assistance in the library may involve students making appointments or stopping in the library for assistance. We are working with IUI Library to determine how best to handle in person library instruction needs in Indianapolis.

Libraries Research Guides, including Course Guides, Subject Guides, and User Guides & Tutorials have been carefully created by Libraries’ faculty and staff for use by the Purdue community.

The School of Information Studies curriculum includes courses in areas such as information literacy, data literacy, digital humanities, geographic information systems (GIS), systematic reviews, digital citizenship, and information ethics. Fall 2024 Libraries will offer a Minor in Information Studies.

Information Studies minor

Designed to equip students with essential skills needed to thrive in today’s interconnected world, students in the minor will explore contemporary issues such as data ethics, misinformation dynamics, online culture, and the transformative effects of technological innovation. The 15-credit minor is comprised of a 6-credit core that includes an introductory course and one 300-level course, either Information, Culture, and Society or Data Foundations, Tools, and Applications. Of the remaining 9 credits needed to complete the minor, 3 credits must be at the 300-level or higher.

Drawing from a diverse array of topics, examples of ILS electives include courses such as Conspiracy Theories, Feminist Inquiry and Research Methods, Data Science and Society, and Information Strategies for Science, Technology, and Engineering Research. Currently several courses have online sections. We look forward to offering in-person courses in Indianapolis in the future.More information about the minor and now to enroll can be found here.
