This call brings together all librarians working with, or learning about, all things Open--and gives folks an opportunity to connect with each other to better their work and librarianship.
Please share the invitation to participate in this call with any librarians on your campus who may be interested.
This month, in addition to our usual updates and requests for support, we'll be chatting about Elsevier's recent acquisition of bepress, and have a wider conversation about ownership of library and scholcomm tools. We'll also take some time to discuss our ideas and actions for this year's Open Access Week in October. You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
