House Committe Holding Public Access Hearing Next Week

Next Thursday, July 29th,  the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Information Policy, the Census and National Archives will hold a hearing on public access to federally funded research. You may remember that last winter the Office of Science and Technology Policy requested public input on the expansion of public access policies, and that this April the Federal Research Public Access Act was re-introduced in the Senate.

The imminent hearing by the house committee shows that there is excitement and movement around public access. Be sure to contact your representative to let her know what you and your patrons think of public access to federally funded research.
