The Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) is the peak leadership organisation for university libraries in Australia. CAUL members are the University Librarians or equivalent of the 39 institutions that have representation on Universities Australia and the 8 members of the Council of New Zealand University Librarians (CONZUL).
This report aims to highlight examples of best practice and inform the creation of a toolkit for libraries to help them support environmental action, further the greening libraries movement, as well as exemplify sustainability practices that are consistent with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
This toolkit was created by the Open Research Working Group, comprising representatives of the Australasian Research Management Society (ARMS) and the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL). The toolkit supports Australasian institutions to implement or further develop open research policy, strategy and practice.
The Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) has released this report, which summarises the results of a survey of Australian CAUL members to understand the extent of use of provisions of the Copyright Act 1968 to support students and academics during the COVID-19 pandemic.
