For Open Access Week at Columbia, we from the Scholarly Communication Program, an initiative of Columbia's Center for Digital Research and Scholarship, along with our friends at Columbia Libraries/Information Services, will be out on campus on College Walk all week (October 21-25) from 9am-4pm talking to students, faculty, and staff about open access, its benefits, and why it's relevant to them. We'll also be asking folks to sign a petition in favor of an open access resolution for their department, which calls for faculty to make their research articles freely available to the public through online repositories, such as Academic Commons, Columbia’s open access digital repository. Oh, and we'll be making buttons and giving out an absurd amount of cookies.
Looking forward to talking to Columbia folks out on campus! Here's to open access and sharing knowledge :)
