Open For Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge

Open Access Week at Bucknell University

Open Access Week 2019 -- October 21-27

 
"Open for Whom? Equity in Open Knowledge"
 
Discovering and building upon knowledge is the foundation of higher education, which makes access to scholarship an essential part of a rigorous experience. However, the subscription model of journal publication ensures that approximately 75% of scientific publications are not accessible without an expensive subscription. What is the impact of inequity in access to information?
 
Join L&IT the week of October 21 to learn more about Open Access, licensing scholarly resources for distribution or reuse, and to learn about the challenges and opportunities inherent with equitable access to knowledge.
