UW Faculty Join Elsevier Negotiations

June 4, 2019

The UW Faculty Senate voted unanimously on May 16, 2019 to approve a Class C Resolution expressing its support for the UW Libraries Licensing Principles and bargaining priorities in upcoming journal package negotiations with major journal publishers. As the Libraries navigate the changing landscape of scholarly communication, we will share information about collections needs, fiscal responsibility and the implications of contracts with UW Faculty.

We are pleased to announce four members of the UW faculty will be joining the Libraries negotiating team.

The Libraries is represented by:

  • Denise Pan, Associate Dean for Collections & Content
  • Corey Murata, Director Collection Analysis & Strategy
  • Gordon Aamot, Director, Scholarly Communication & Publishing
  • Faye Christenberry, Collection Strategy and Licensing Librarian

Together we will partner to build and negotiate transformative models that create collaborative and sustainable long-term solutions. As stated in our Strategic Plan, UW Libraries works to advance research for the public good because we believe that “UW research attains its greatest impact on our most pressing global challenges when we advocate for open, public and emerging forms of scholarship.”
