Need Help with the NIH Public Access Policy?

Are you an NIH-funded researcher who is wondering how you will comply with the new NIH public access policy that takes effect on April 7?

The UCSD Biomedical Library has created a website to summarize and clarify the policy, and to make it easier for you to comply.

The Library is also offering 30-minute sessions to review the benefits and requirements of the policy.  The first two are scheduled for April 10 and April 15, 12:15-12:45 PM in the Events Room.  If the class dates and times aren’t convenient, custom sessions can be arranged for individuals or groups.

As a faculty member who requested a custom session recently said:  “Thank you SO MUCH for your presentation yesterday.  It was just what we needed to raise awareness and learn how-to information on getting this new requirement accomplished!”

For more information, contact Nancy Stimson at (858) 534-6321 or nstimson@ucsd.edu.  To sign up for a class, contact Vicky Anderson at (858) 822-4760 or vkanderson@ucsd.edu.
