Description

Open access is making research results and scholarship freely available to anyone with an internet connection rather than keeping those results hidden behind a subscription pay wall or any other financial, organizational, legal or technical barriers. Some examples of OA resources include scholarly journals, electronic theses and dissertations, textbooks, source code, images, educational resources, video, audio, and many other educational and research resources. Who knew, right?!

Come and share a story of when Open Access information saved the day or times when you couldn’t access proprietary information you or the students and faculty we serve needed. Come pick up pointers, share tips and tricks. By the time the hour is up, we’ll all realize that OA actually stands for Oh!? Awesome!

Oh and to add to all that Awesome, Openly Accessible refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP so that we have the correct head count for catering.

Your facilitators are Natalie Tagge and Allegra Swift.
