Peter Suber and Robin Peek: A Conversation With Students

Monday, October 22

5:30pm

Kotzen Room, Lefavour Hall (L-001), Simmons College

 

As part of Open Access Week, the Simmons ASIS&T Student Chapter and Dr. Robin Peek are pleased to welcome Dr. Peter Suber to GSLIS for an engaging, student-centered discussion on open access.  

 

Dr. Suber is the Director of the Harvard Open Access Project, Faculty Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Senior Researcher at SPARC, Open Access Project Director at Public Knowledge, and Research Professor of Philosophy at Earlham College.  He recently published a new book titled Open Access.  (Hint: The first chapter is already open access!)  

 

Dr. Peek is an associate professor in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at Simmons College.  An early advocate of the Open Access movement, she is the co-founder and editor of the Open Access Directory and currently teaches a GSLIS course focused on open access and scholarly communications.

 

Join us for an exciting conversation about a topic critical to information science!

 

All are welcome!  While the focus of this event will be on GSLIS students, all members of the GSLIS community and of the general public are welcome!
