Unlocking the Library: Reading, Writing and Working in the Open

Enjoy a panel discussion on the topic of Open Access on Wednesday, October 26 from 4-5:30 pm in Grewen Auditorium. The panelists will include:

Anne Rauh, Librarian for Science and Engineering, Syracuse University
Rauh will provide an overview of Open Access (OA). What is it? Why is it important to libraries?

Emily Ledgerwood, Ph.D, assistant professor, Biology, Le Moyne College
Ledgerwood will share her experiences as a scholar who has published in OA journals. Why did she choose this model? What is the role of OA to the scientific community?

Chris Forster, Ph.D., assistant professor of English, Syracuse University
Forster will tie the themes of OA to those discussed in the COR100 common reading, A Room of One’s Own. Virginia Woolf was an advocate for information access for all, but as a self-publisher, might she also be tapped into the financial implications? Is there a place for OA in the humanities?

This event is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Noreen Reale Falcone Library and the Core Curriculum. For more information, call Kelly Delevan at (315) 445-4154.
