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.
What’s better than watching a documentary on the current state of academic publishing? Watching it with your scholarly communications community! Join us for a virtual viewing of “Paywall: The Business of Scholarship”. Use UberConference’s chat feature to chat about the film while watching. To ensure that everyone has video and sound, everyone will need to have access to the video either by downloading the MPEG4 file or by queuing up the film on Vimeo. Runtime is 1:04.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
