Heading for the beach or still at work? Well, anyhow you got a brand new issue of JEAHIL to read.
- In the first paper, Juuso Ala-Kyyny and Markku Roinila, from Helsinki University Library, discuss open access journals hosted by the Library, and how these are used as educational tools. The students can learn from creating and from peer-reviewing content.
- In the next paper Rebecca Wojturska, from the University of Edinburgh, describes open-access publishing hosted by the Library, and how this student-led open access publishing can support student learning, and academic literacy.
- Finally, Fiona Brown, Heather Moberly and Emma Place (from the University of Edinburgh, Texas A&M University and the University of Bristol) describe “EBVM Learning”, an open access online learning tool designed to support learning and teaching of evidence-based veterinary medicine.
They give some examples of how this open educational resource is currently used in teaching. These papers show some ways in which libraries, and librarians, can support openness in learning as well as in research.
