ACM and Purdue University have signed a three-year Open Access (OA) agreement under the ACM OPEN program in Feb. 2021.
Under this agreement, all new ACM research articles published by Purdue corresponding authors will be made OA in perpetuity in the ACM Digital Library (dl.acm.org) at no cost to authors, with default CC-BY author rights for article reuse. Additionally, all accepted new ACM research articles from any Purdue author (corresponding or not) will be automatically deposited into Purdue’s institutional repository.
The agreement is in effect from January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2023.
As the librarian for Computer Science, I collaborate and consult with Purdue faculty and students affiliated with the department. I teach classes and workshops and provide one-on-one research consultations in-person and via email. I also purchase new books, journals, multimedia, and other online research sources for the department as well as conduct my own research in digital libraries.
