Members of the University of Kentucky community publishing articles in the the peer-reviewed publications of the Electrochemical Society (Journal of The Electrochemical Society, ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology, ECS Electrochemistry Letters, and ECS Solid State Letters) can choose to have these articles made freely available to all by choosing the Open Access option during the submission process.
Giving authors the choice of making their articles available as OA is the first step for ECS toward enabling Open Access throughout their four journals. ECS’s long-term goal is to move away from the subscriptions model entirely, to full Open Access. Because subscribing institutions have already contributed to publishing costs (through their subscriptions), each subscribing institution is given, as part of their subscriptions package for 2014, unlimited Article Credits. Authors who neither belong to a subscribing institution nor are ECS members will be charged for making an article available as Open Access once it has been accepted. In 2014, the Article Processing Charge is USD $800 per accepted article.

The University of Kentucky Libraries is offering an on-campus trial of the Dictionary of American Regional English (DARE) from Harvard University Press.
DARE is a reference work that documents words, phrases, and pronunciations that vary from one place to another place across the United States.
DARE is based on face-to-face interviews carried out in all 50 states between 1965 and 1970 and on a comprehensive collection of written materials (diaries, letters, novels, histories, biographies, newspapers, government documents, etc.) that cover our history from the colonial period to the present.
The entries in DARE include regional pronunciations, variant forms, some etymologies, and regional and social distributions of the words and phrases including maps that show where words were found in the 1,002 communities investigated during the compilation of the dictionary.
Also included is access to survey questions and responses and a bibliography of written materials used in the creation of the lexicon.
For more information on using DARE, please visit http://www.daredictionary.com/page/howtouse/how-to-use-dare.
