Event Description

Join us for a talk on the global impact of open access presented by Robyn Hall (Scholarly Communications Librarian, MacEwan University) and Dan Mirau (Library Director, Concordia University of Edmonton). 

Description: The Internet enables ideas, scholarship, and data to travel the world over. However, all too often commercial interests put restrictive borders around this information thereby limiting students, scientists, patients, policy makers, and others from accessing the information they need. Drawing on the concept of disruptive innovation, this session will explore online tools and strategies that supporters of the open access movement are using to tell the stories of these unmet information needs from around the world, while also highlighting recent, groundbreaking initiatives working to dismantle commercial barriers and allow scholarly information to flow more freely online.
