Do you feel passionately about distributing scholarly knowledge in a more equitable way? We are currently seeking 1 to 3 students from each Canadian university to join our network as campus representatives. Campus representatives will be responsible for:
- Meeting with members of the core committee monthly via Google Hangouts
- Leading on-campus initiatives that promote open access, open data, and/or open education
- Liaising between your institutional librarians and the OOO Canada Research Network
Campus representatives will also have the option of helping create website content and writing blogposts. You would eventually have the opportunity to take a greater leadership role on the core committee of the OOO Canada Research Network.
We are looking for enthusiastic people who care deeply about fair access to information and want to take on a leadership position in their community. Representatives should be willing to commit to at least one year in their position. Please e-mail lorrainechuen(at)gmail.com if you have any questions. We are accepting applications on a rolling basis. We are a small team so it may take some time for us to get back to you!
If you are interested in being a campus representative, please fill out this application form.
Our current organizing members meet via internet conference call once a month and work on various open scholarship initiatives in our own institutional and regional communities.
