Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and Cambridge University Press have entered into a three-year read and publish agreement that allows researchers to publish in Cambridge's suite of journals without incurring article processing charges (APC). This agreement will extend the benefits of open access to CMU faculty who are publishing in Cambridge journals and help remove access barriers to research worldwide.
As the planet continues to warm and humans encroach on more wilderness areas, scientists warn of the unfolding sixth mass extinction on the planet. To evaluate the progression of this catastrophe, researchers need a large amount of high-quality data that contains detailed records of plant and animal biodiversity across the planet. The Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) provides the largest open-access biodiversity data network for researchers, conservation agencies, and ultimately, policy makers.
For the spring semester, access to the Libraries will remain restricted to CMU students, staff, and faculty members due to capacity restrictions and COVID protocols. Access control to Hunt Library will be upgraded to an automated swipe-card system beginning Monday, February 15, 2021. We remind our community members to carry a CMU ID card to access facilities during open hours. Students must also reserve a seat for in-person studying.

Presented by Carnegie Mellon University Libraries and the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the Innovation Roundtable brings together students, faculty, and researchers to discuss how the resources and services provided by these units fuel innovation, problem-solving, and collaboration. This year's event will focus on the first cohort of remote SEI interns' unique experience and the Libraries tools that enable remote collaboration and innovation.
The University Libraries Speaker Series features speakers from a wide range of backgrounds who embody at least one of the Libraries’ core values of context, curiosity, or access.
