*Libraries web site update, IUB
Those long URLS!
The URL to the Find Information page of the Libraries web site doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue when you try to tell it to users over the phone (http://www.libraries.iub.edu/index.php?pageId=16). But there is a better way! Just tell them: “Go to www.libraries.iub.edu/findinfo”
The Libraries web team will be working with libraries, collections and departments to develop new URLs for web pages in the coming months.

*Program on Repositories and Open Access, IUPUI
The IUPUI University Library will be conducting a symposium on Friday September 12, 2003 on the topics of repositories and open access. There will be two speakers Deborah Helman from MIT, who will be discussing DSpace, and Peter Suber, a faculty member from Earlham College and a leading spokesperson for the open scholarship movement, who will discuss open access.
Both speakers have agreed to stay on campus and give their presentations a second time, so we are able to open this up to a wider audience.
