Open Access Publishing

Fogler Library has a small number of publisher licensing agreements that enable UMaine faculty, staff, and students to publish their research as open access (OA) journal articles, without the need to pay an article processing charge (APC). The publishers listed on the page do not charge the library any additional fees for OA publishing on top of the library’s existing subscription cost.

CITL Workshop: Examining Your Syllabus for AI Susceptibility

Date: January 11

Time: 2:00 – 3:30 PM

As AI continues to evolve, it is becoming important to evaluate our courses to determine if and how AI might be used by students in unintended ways. In this working session, CITL invites you to bring your syllabus and review your course through this lens. As a group, we will share possible modifications to assessments and strategies for embracing AI in your teaching. If interested, please register here.

AI in the Classroom: Evaluate & Cite

Date: January 17

Time: 4:00 – 5:00 PM

This workshop will take place in Library Classroom 1 in Fogler Library from 4pm-5pm. Topics covered include evaluating various AI tools for text creation and image creation, with emphasis on their use and best practices. Additionally, we will devote time to providing attendees with tools on evaluating AI-generated output, including difficulties presented by AI in terms of citation, copyright, plagiarism, and the generation of incorrect or hallucinated information. Please register for this event here, and come with questions–we are happy to help!

Fogler Website Redesign Survey

Fogler Library is on a mission to refresh its website, and we’d love your intellectual input. If you could spare 5-10 minutes for our survey, it would be immensely helpful. Share your thoughts on our current online presence, making our website the best it’s ever been. The survey will remain open until the end of January. Thanks!
