UF Event: Open Access with Peter Suber, Oct. 23, 2pm

The event notice below was shared with Librarians at the University of Florida.  The notice is from UF and ASERL, and it’s online so others can also attend.


On Wednesday, October 23rd at 2:00 PM, the University of Florida and the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) will be hosting a “Chat with Peter Suber” in commemoration of the 6th Annual International Open Access Week. Peter Suber, who is Director of the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communications as well as the Director of the Harvard Open Access Project, is widely considered as the de factor leader of the worldwide open access movement. His latest book Open Access was published in 2012 and is an essential guide to what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how it avoids typical copyright management pitfalls, and what the future of open access holds.

Dr. Suber will be joining us via live video stream from Harvard University and will be interviewed by University of Florida Scholarly Communications Librarian and ASERL Visiting Program Officer for Scholarly Communications Christine Fruin. The event will be held in UF CSE Room 507. Additional seating will be available in UF’s Marston Science Library Room 107 where the event will also be streamed live. Questions will be taken live during the event from audience members joining us in person and online.
