2022 Celebration of Scholarship & Creative Expression

We ask that all faculty and staff who have published professional work or have juried art/ multimedia to consider sharing their works with the Oxford College community at the Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Expression (CSCE) 2022! This exhibit is a great way to share accomplishments with the community in a tangible way – your colleagues can read the article, look at the book, appreciate your artistic talents, watch the video... all from the exhibit on the Oxford Library first floor.  Please complete the submission form if you have any item(s) you’d like us to add to the exhibit. Just tell us what the item is and we will take care of tracking it down. If you have artwork to exhibit, we will contact you to arrange pick-up.
The other component of CSCE is a great party! We will have amazing food and libations so that we can all get together to view the exhibit – and toast the end of the semester! All faculty and staff, exhibitors and non-exhibitors are welcome. We hope you will join us on April 22 for the party beginning at 4pm.  Invitations will be coming to your inbox soon!

DEI & Oxford Course Reserves

In the fall of 2020, Emory University Libraries formed a subcommittee to analyze materials used in course reserves from 2017-2020 to identify gaps in authorship diversity of assigned course readings. The following is the data the Oxford College Library found:
From the data gathered, we were able to see how most materials put on reserve for courses at Oxford were by white, male authors. These statistics can be used to aid in improving the diversity of materials offered to our students and to increase representation from minority voices. 
If you have any questions about this data, please reach out to us at

Cambridge Read & Publish Agreement

Starting January 1, 2022, all Emory researchers (i.e., anyone with an email address) will be able to publish open access in all Cambridge Journals with no article processing charges (APCs) to maximize the accessibility, availability, and impact of Emory research. The Libraries’ Cambridge package includes over 380 peer-reviewed journals across the humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields. Emory joins over 1,000 prestigious research institutions across the globe in formalizing this agreement with Cambridge University Press (CUP), whose goal is to make all their journals fully open access around 2025. When submitting to a CUP journal, you will be asked if you wish to publish your research open access. Respond in the affirmative, and no further action is required on your part. The agreement applies to all articles accepted for publication between January 1, 2022, and December 31, 2024 

For more information on this recent open access publishing agreement, please contact the Head of our Scholarly Communications Office Jody Bailey or the Head of Collection Management Christopher Palazzolo
