Wednesday Lunch Talk — Open Access Publishing: Is the Future Now?

Wednesday, March 5, 2014
Noon - 1 pm.
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase 215

The Internet and technology have, in combination, changed the nature of information dissemination, including scholarly publishing, that has led to a questioning of the traditional model of scholarly communications. Libraries have always played a key role in the acquisition, access, and preservation of the outcomes of scholarship, namely books and journals. Traditional models of scholarly communication are changing as the push towards openly accessible scholarship accelerates, and libraries are at the center of these changes in the academy. Is the future of open access publishing now? Join us for what will likely be a lively discussion on the merits, opportunities, challenges, and barriers to open access scholarly publishing.

Presented by Mary Ann Mavrinac, Vice Provost and Andrew H. and Janet Dayton Neilly Dean, River Campus Libraries.

Light lunch served. No reservation required.
