Digital Media and Open Access: A Solution for Readers and Writers

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Davis Hall 10 Lippitt Rd, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI 02881, USA

Open access scholarship is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions.

• It is good for us as readers because it increases our access to valuable research no longer trapped behind publisher pay walls.

• It is good for us as authors because it increases the impact of our work.

• And by increasing accessibility to scholarship, open access benefits everyone by speeding up progress in the arts and sciences.


Come participate in a discussion about open access lead by Professor Andrée Rathemacher of the University Libraries.
