The Libraries now offer access to LabArchives Professional Edition for research and Classroom Edition for teaching and learning for all CMU faculty, staff, and students, at no cost. The new license will save CMU users $21,000 in out-of-pocket expenses each year, as current users are no longer going to be required to spend $15 per semester on individual licenses for the classroom edition.
Carnegie Mellon University, a longtime proponent of open-access research, is championing an international movement to revolutionize academic publishing.
The university recently reached a transformative agreement with the scientific publishing giant Elsevier that prioritizes free and public access to the university’s research. This comes at a time when universities around the world are working to transition the current subscription system of scientific journal publishing to new open access business models.

Carnegie Mellon University Libraries recently hosted a conversation on harnessing the power of artificial intelligence for scientific data discovery.
The AIDR (Artificial Intelligence for Data Discovery and Reuse) 2019 conference took place May 13-15 and brought 150 researchers, computer scientists, librarians and industry representatives from 10 countries and 65 institutions and organizations to CMU May 13-15.
A groundbreaking new dataset of functional MRI brain scans that will significantly impact researchers’ ability to apply machine learning techniques to understanding how the brain processes information can be found in the University Libraries’ KiltHub repository. Collected over multiple sessions, the project gathered over 20 hours of MRI data from each of four subjects.
Carnegie Mellon University Partners with protocols.io to Enable Sharing of Scientific Practices
Carnegie Mellon University Libraries today announced its partnership with protocols.io, an open access service for academic and industry scientists to record and share detailed up-to-date protocols for research. With this announcement, Carnegie Mellon becomes the first institution to partner with protocols.io on an institutional license.
New research, which appears in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, sheds light on how the damage in the brain caused by a stroke can lead to permanent vision impairment for approximately 265,000 Americans each year. The findings could provide researchers with a blueprint to better identify which areas of vision are recoverable, facilitating the development of more effective interventions to encourage vision recovery.
