Open Access Week @ UCSB October 22-26, 2018
Wednesday October 24, 11:00am. Interdisciplinary Research Collaboratory, 2nd Floor Mountain Side.
The UCSB Library is seeking proposals for our annual Open Access (OA) Week activities, which will take place October 22-26, 2018.
In a room at the UC Santa Barbara Library, Eileen A. Fradenburg Joy and her students prepare for revolution. They wield no weapons, only words. They seek not to overthrow a government, but to disrupt the multibillion-dollar academic publishing industry.
The UCSB Library Scholarly Communication Program is pleased to present Nubian studies scholar, punctum books co-director, and philologist Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei.
Vincent will discuss how community-focused, scholar-led open access publishing can help launch fields of inquiry and study that otherwise would not have adequate resources to establish themselves, because most publishers would consider the discipline too "small" and thus too risky to commit publishing resources.
UCSB Library is participating in Fair Use Week, a national event coordinated annually by the Association of Research Libraries that celebrates and explores fair use rights under the copyright statute. We invite you to learn more about fair use in academia by visiting our information table in the Library Paseo during Fair Use Week, February 20-24, 2017.
