Open Access Week

Open Access Week, October 22-28, 2018, #OAWeek, is an internationally recognized event that raises awareness about the Open movement towards the free sharing of information and learning resources. Join McMaster University Library on Wednesday October 24th and Thursday October 25th as we celebrate the week by offering a great lineup of events and presentations.

The celebration begins on Oct. 24th when we screen the documentary Paywall: The Business of Scholarship (1:04:48). You are welcome to stay after the film for a debrief.  The discussion continues on Oct. 25th,  which we have marked as Open Day at McMaster. The Library is pleased to partner with eCampusOntario whose representatives will be speaking on Making Sense of Open Education and Becoming an Open Educator. In the latter session, Dr. Anderson, McMaster Dept. of Linguistics and Languages, will speak about her experience in creating an open textbook entitled Essentials of Linguistics.

Please drop-in for any or all of these events!
