I am the Open Access & Scholarly Communication Librarian for Iowa State University. For my work, I do a variety of activities related to outreach and education on open access, open education, copyright, and other scholarly communication topics. In addition, I also teach Iowa State University’s Information Literacy course, Library 160, and provide liaison support for the Anthropology and Sociology departments at the university. My main job duties at this time are related to open educational resources (OER). I have created guides, websites, and tools for users to learn more about OER, including a handbook, The OER Starter Kit, and a series of Youtube videos intended to introduce faculty to the world of open education. I have also coordinated the Iowa State Open Education Mini-Grant Program and chair our university’s Open & Affordable Education Committee. My personal and professional interests lie in open access in the humanities, open education across disciplinary lines, and the very broad category of “open science.” If you have a research project you are seeking collaborators for, feel free to reach out (email@example.com) and I will let you know if I’m interested.
I am a librarian who is passionate about open knowledge and public humanities. Currently I’m a Librarian for Digital Academic Strategies at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. I previously worked as the Open Access Specialist at Boston University and received my M.S. in Library and Information Science from Simmons College. In my career as a librarian, I have advocated for open access to information, educated others about open access practices, and coordinated programming to promote the use of open educational resources. I am also active in a number of public humanities projects that promote community building, self-reflection, and social justice. I am a member of the SPARC Open Education Leadership Program 2018-19 cohort.
I’m the Open Education Librarian at the Penn State University Libraries in Pennsylvania, where I coordinate affordable content initiatives across the campuses and provide guidance on copyright, creative commons licensing, and project management.I also serve as a liaison for faculty to other University units creating OER.
I teach mostly composition courses to community college students, mostly in ecocomposition mode. I sometimes get to teach science fiction, my real favorite. I’m currently turning my attention to open educational resources and increasing educational access in general.
I have worked in Museum Education at the Dallas Museum of Art and Nasher Sculpture Center, as well as having over fifteen years experience as a higher education instructor. I currently serve as Full-time Faculty of Art History and Art Appreciation at Brookhaven College. Additional projects include curatorial efforts, specifically on comics related exhibitions. Moreover, as an advocate for open-educational resources, I have contributed several times to the OER website Smarthistory.

I am a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Calgary, working in logic, history of analytic philosophy, and the philosophy of mathematics. In logic, my main interests are non-classical logics and proof theory. My historical interests lie mainly in the development of formal logic and historical figures associated with this development such as Hilbert, Gödel, and Carnap. In the philosophy of mathematics I have mainly worked on Hilbert’s program and the philosophical relevance of proof theory. I’m also interested, and actively working on, Open Educational Resources.
I am interested in how various iterations of “openness”—including OA publishing models, open educational models, and open peer review, as well as open and transparent scholarly practices—might help foster a more inclusive, equitable, and community-oriented academy. I am co-PI on the Mellon-funded HumetricsHSS initiative, an investigation into the viability of a values-based framework for indicating excellence, and a founding editor of The Idealis, an overlay journal promoting the best in open-access scholarly communication. I serve on the editorial board of the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication and the organizing committee of the Force11 Scholarly Communication Institute.
