USU LIBRARIES CELEBRATE OPEN ACCESS!
The Merrill-Cazier Library will celebrate International Open Access Week Oct. 24-28. Did you ever wonder why you couldn’t get access to all of the information you need for your research? Everyone can get an answer to that and much more at a table (with candy!) in the Merrill-Cazier Library foyer between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. during Open Access Week. Librarians will be on hand to answer such questions, explain the scholarly communications crisis and provide helpful ideas on how you can help liberate research. The campus community is also invited to join a panel discussion that explores the topic “Do we have a right to knowledge?” Ethicist Erica Holberg, physicist Charlie Torre and USU Press Director Michael Spooner present their unique perspectives on our right to knowledge and the open access movement in general. The discussion is Wednesday Oct. 26, 4:30 p.m., at Merrill-Caizer Library Room 101, followed by refreshments.
