Ellen supports MIT faculty and researchers who have questions about their options and rights in the world of scholarly publishing, including working with the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy and complying with the NIH Public Access Policy.
Ellen has worked in the MIT Libraries since 1990 in a variety of roles. Since 1996, she has been negotiating license agreements for ejournals and databases so that this content can be made available on the MIT network under terms for access and use that meet MIT’s needs. She provides support for MIT faculty and researchers at the time of publication, when many rights and potential uses are defined in publisher agreements.
