Open Access Book Launch

openaccess Open Access Book LaunchOn Tuesday, September 11th, at 6:00 pm, the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communication and the Harvard Law School Library are sponsoring the launch of Peter Suber’s new book, Open Access, which “tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber’s influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers.”

If you’d like to attend this event in person, fill out this form at the Berkman site and you’ll get a confirmation by e-mail. For those who can’t attend in person, the event will be recorded and archived on the Berkman Center site shortly after it takes place.

I love the fact that Suber not only talks the talk but walks the walk; as his web site states: “The book will become open access one year after publication.” Very cool.

More as it happens,
Cheryl

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at claguard@fas.harvard.edu, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
