Event description

Description

Scholarly communication and the open access movement has come a long way in its acceptance in the academic environment. However, the economic models of open access have not been as open and free as anticipated, and this is because publishing models are still rooted in traditional power structures. What can libraries do to subvert these imbalances?

Charlotte Roh is the Scholarly Communications Librarian at the University of San Francisco, a Jesuit university next to Golden Gate Park with a social justice mission.

The American University Library's Colloquium on Scholarly Communication features experts from both American University and the larger academic community presenting on challenges for academia in the twenty-first century.

A light lunch will follow the presentation.
