For the second time, the University Library received the Open Library Badge of the initiative of the same name for more openness in libraries.
We are proud to again meet the revised criteria of 2016 in the required number and beyond. The Open Science Team has taken up the new challenge
and is implementing openness in the following contexts, for example:
- Helping to shape open source software: UB projects on the university’s own GitLab
- Enable text and data mining: info page
- Make photos of the library reusable: Uploads to Wikimedia Commons
Additional points are displayed as best practices on the badge page.
The award is an incentive for us to further expand the Open Science Network at Chemnitz University of Technology, because open science already permeates all disciplines in science and research. Digital teaching, open educational materials are two of many exciting topics.
For the upcoming International Open Access Week from 19-25 October 2020, we will again be offering various virtual services.
