THE CLOTHESLINE PROJECT
"The Clothesline Project - Fighting Violence Against Women" will be displayed in the TSC International Lounge on the USU Campus, and is sponsored by the Center for Women and Gender. The Clothesline Project (CLP) began in 1990 as a program to address the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.

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.
