CCANZ February newsletter

Creative Commons news

We’ve set out our thinking at CCANZ for 2015. March will see the CC Road Trip setting off around the country: we’ll be making a special announcement with all the details soon. The Otago Uni Anatomy Dept has released patterns for anatomy teaching models under CC. Historical maps of Christchurch now available online (and mostly CC licensed).

OA February at NZCommons

February at NZCommons.org.nz is Open Access month! We begin with Dr Rupert Gatti of Open Book Publishers writing on OA in the UK, with heaps more articles to come throughout February. Please feel free to comment or contribute a piece yourself.

Are you on Tumblr?

NZCommons is now on Tumblr, and we’re on the lookout for interesting blogs to follow. Please let us know your recommendations.

CC workshops available where you are

Throughout 2015 we’re pleased to be able to once again offer free introductory CC workshops, run across the country by our excellent team of facilitators.

CC around the world

National and State Libraries Australasia has released new CC procedural guidelines. The US National Endowment for the Humanities will publish out-of-copyright books as freely accessible, CC-licensed ebooks. Some Naturejournals are to start using the CC BY licence as their default. As of 2017, researchers funded by the Swedish Research Council must publish using a CC BY licence.
