Inba Kehoe, copyright and scholarly communication librarian at UVic Libraries, is the recipient of the Award for Excellence in Open Education from BCcampus.  In 2007, she established UVic Libraries’ ePublishing Service, a digital open access publishing program, that has supported the publication of over 30 open access journals and over a dozen open access monographs.  Kehoe has worked in partnership with BCcampus to encourage the creation, adaptation, and adoption of open textbooks at UVic.  The e-publishing service also facilitates the open dissemination of UVic faculty research publications through the university’s institutional repository.

Kehoe is currently pursuing an interdisciplinary PhD related to open scholarship.
