In Google Scholar, the "FindIt @KUMC" link is missing. Will it be coming back?

Links to KUMC-licensed content should be restored in Google by Tuesday 11/25 or Wednesday 11/26. There was a technical issue between Google and the Library's vendor that provides this data. The vendor has fixed the problem and Google Scholar will update their index as scheduled around that time.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
If you have not set KUMC Libraries as one of your Google Scholar Library Links, go to Google Scholar > Settings > Library links. Search for "university of kansas medical center" and any other libraries you have access to.

"One University" Open Access Funds Available

Beginning  November 19, the "One University" Open Access Fund is once again made possible by contributions from the offices of KU Provost, KU Vice Chancellor for Research & Graduate Studies, and KUMC Vice Chancellor for Research.

Due to the significant number of applicants but limited funds during the two-year pilot of this fund, considerable evaluation of award results and consultation with KU and KUMC faculty and researchers resulted in changes to the application process, criteria, and awarding of funds available for the remaining FY15 and  FY16.  The awarding will now be a monthly competitive process reviewed within the first 5 business days of each month. Priority will be given to graduate students, early career research staff, pre-tenure faculty, those with little or no research funding to support their open access publishing, and first time OA Fund applicants.  You can find full details of the OA Fund here. To request funds, please go here.

KU, KU Law, and KUMC libraries administer and assess the program with oversight provided by the KU Provost, KU Vice Chancellor for Research & Graduate Studies, and KUMC Vice Chancellor for Research.
