SPEC Kit 311: Public Access Policies · 23
Other Organizational Structure
As ‘Special Advisor/Liaison to the General Counsel’ I provide workshops and individualized review for faculty and
administrators on issues of copyright, open access, compliance.
In the Digital Programs and Technology Services (DPTS) division, there are a variety of ways in which authors’
compliance with PAPs is supported. The Center for Digital Research and Scholarship runs a Scholarly
Communication Program that works to educate faculty on the requirements of PAPs. The information pages on
the NIH Public Access Policy that appear on the Scholarly Communication Program Web site, and outreach that
was done around the NIH’s policy when it was first enacted, were coordinated by an ad hoc committee with
representatives from the Main and Health Science Libraries, the Office of Research, and the General Counsel’s
Office. The Copyright Advisory Office, also part of DPTS, educates faculty on complying with PAPs and provides
assistance with questions about PAP requirements and publishing contracts. Individual librarians are also a conduit
of information.
