Dimensions of Open

Open Access exhibit poster

Dimensions of Open is inspired by the efforts of Dartmouth authors, creators, artists, and inventors to make the results of their work openly and publicly available. The work of Dartmouth scholars and researchers is often in collaboration with authors across the globe, and immediate access to that work has a significant global impact. This exhibit reveals the complex issues surrounding open information through six dimensions: global, political, financial, workforce, technological, and future.

Partnering for a Better World: The Matariki Network of Universities

Matariki exhibit poster

The Matariki Network of Universities is an international consortium of seven leading universities on three continents and in seven countries. It was established in 2010 to create new opportunities for collaboration in research and education, to foster faculty, student and staff exchange, create a forum for sharing best practices, and to promote local and global social responsibility . Matariki members are critical friends and trusted partners.

Matariki is the Māori name for the Pleiades star cluster, also known as the Seven Sisters. Matariki is also the word for the Māori New Year, which marks the rise of Matariki and the sighting of the new moon. 

The creation of the Matariki Network of Universities was inspired by the Pleiades, and represents the relationship between, and collaboration among, seven of the world’s leading universities.

Matariki member institutions include Dartmouth (United States), Durham (United Kingdom), Queen’s (Canada), Uppsala (Sweden), Tübingen (Germany), the University of Western Australia, and the University of Otago (New Zealand).

Exhibit offered in conjunction with Annual Meeting of the Matariki Network Executive Board at Dartmouth College, October 2017.

Curated by Laurel Stavis, Assistant Provost for Academic Initiatives and Jennifer Taxman, Associate Librarian for Research and Learning.
