Whose Scholarship? Our Scholarship!

The University of Regina Library will celebrate International Open Access Week 2013 by hosting a free lecture on October 24.  Visiting scholar Dr. Heather Morrison will discuss how the current system in academia drives scholars to give away the visible results of our work.  This talk is a call for scholars to  take back our scholarship from a system that drives enclosure for profit to one led by scholars that can put the priorities for sharing where they belong: prioritizing the needs of scholars and the public good. Open access advocates and newcomers alike with leave with some clear and compelling arguments about why this is necessary, and practical steps that will help the transition along.
