Subject: [free-culture] January Free Culture Events: Taking Access on Open
Access and Cory Doctorow
Greetings Free Culture @ NYU,
I hope you are enjoying your winter breaks and are looking
forward to a fantastic new year.
Free Culture @ NYU has some great events lined up for January and
we wanted to make sure you knew about them.
First is our "Taking Action on Open Access" event:
Taking Action on Open Access Freeculture.org
will be holding an organization-wide
*Open Access event in NYC
on Jan. 13, 2007 from 12-5pm at NYU's Courant Institute
in Room 101.*
All chapters are invited and encouraged to attend.
The event will be free and is open to anyone interested in
advocating for Open Access and Free Culture on university
campuses. There will be food and refreshments and we're hoping to
record the entire session to post online.
As opposed to last year's Freeculture.org NYC regional summit,
this event will be more specific and focused. We'll be tackling
the issue of how to advocate for Open Access on university
campuses. We want to take action and start targeting faculty and
professors whose work is publicly (or university funded) but is
published in closed journals that charge exorbitant prices to
libraries and students. There is an alternative out there and we
want to make sure everyone knows about it. Access to Knowledge
isn't just important, it is your right as a student and member of
a larger academic community.
The event will be interactive, with presentations from
influential professionals working in the Open Access world
followed by smaller working groups.
Interested in coming? Just RSVP to *oa [at] freeculturenyu.org*
or via our facebook event post
Here is the agenda for the day:
12:00pm Registration / Lunch
1:00pm Jennifer Mclennan from SPARC
2:00pm Gavin Yamey Public
3:00pm Actual Training
