For uninterrupted access to UBC Library ejournals and databases, set up myVPN before December 31, 2009.

University of Ottawa has announced the launch of a comprehensive Open Access program. Below is an excerpt from the news release at: http://www.media.uottawa.ca/mediaroom/news-details_1824.html

*OTTAWA, December 8, 2009* — The University of Ottawa is the first Canadian university to adopt a comprehensive open access program that supports free and unrestricted access to scholarly research.

The University’s new program includes:

  • a commitment to make the University’s scholarly publications available online at no charge through the University’s repository, uO Research;
  • an author fund to help researchers defray open access fees charged by publishers;
  • a fund to support the creation of digital educational materials organized as courses and available to everyone online at no charge ;
  • support for the University of Ottawa Press’s commitment to publishing a collection of open access books; and
  • a research grant to support further research on the open access movement.

myVPN

On December 31, 2009, the old UBC Vancouver Campus Virtual Private Network (VPN) service will be replaced by myVPN, which has been available since early September.

If you’ve been using the old VPN to remotely access UBC online resources, and you would like to maintain that access, you will need to start using the new myVPN service before the end of December.

For information on how to use the new myVPN — including how to subscribe to it, where to get help setting it up, etc. – please see http://www.it.ubc.ca/security/VPN.html

Do you know about “The Magnetic Anomaly Near Kursk, Russia” investigated in the late 1800s? Or how Argon 40 was used in an attempt to calculate the age of the Earth in 1950? So, dig into the AGU archives and find out.

A selection of journal are available to explore, including Terrestrial Magnetism (from 1896 – 1898), Geophysical Research Letters (1974 – 2004) and Water Resources Research (1965 – 2004).
