OPEN ACCESS WEEK
October 22-26, 2018

OPEN ACCESS INFORMATION BOOTHS
When: Monday, Oct. 22, through Friday, Oct. 26, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Firestone Library, Stokes Library, Lewis Science Library, and Engineering Library

Please visit an Open Access Week information booth at one of the libraries above to pick up a brochure or a bookmark, and learn more about open access, open access resources in your subject, and how open access benefits you. If you have questions to ask or stories to share about open access, please contact the Scholarly Communications Office at sco@princeton.edu.

SCREENING OF PAYWALL: THE BUSINESS OF SCHOLARSHIP
When: Wednesday, Oct. 24, from noon to 2 p.m.
Where: Firestone Library (Room A-6-F) 

Please join the Princeton University Library for a screening of the movie Paywall: The Business of Scholarship

Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier, and looks at how this profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook, and Google. 

We are thrilled to be joined by the film's director and producer, Jason Schmitt, to lead a lively and informative discussion following the screening of his film. Save the date, and join us for this exciting event! Light refreshments will be served.

Please join us for a panel discussion on open educational resources (OER), student learning, and social justice. A panel of two teaching faculty and three academic librarians will describe their experiences with adopting, assessing, and providing access to open educational resources at the City University of New York and Rutgers University. The discussion will encompass the topics of classroom adoption, student engagement, institutional support, structural questions, and social justice issues surrounding open educational resources. From using open source course management software to organizing OER workshops for faculty, the OER panelists will provide perspective on the benefits and challenges of OER, based on their own professional experiences.
