This call brings together all librarians working with, or learning about, all things Open--and gives folks an opportunity to connect with each other to better their work and librarianship.
This year's Open Access Week theme is "Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge" (http://www.openaccessweek.org/). Do you have a plan? Are you looking for ideas? Join us for an Open Access Week brainstorming session on August 14 and make the most of the remaining 68 planning days! This brainstorming session will be in a different format from our usual calls. To get the most out of this call you will need access to a computer and the call notes (linked here). The objective of the call is to answer this question: How might we as scholcomm librarians change behavior around diversity, equity and inclusion in our communities during Open Access Week? With a series of brainstorming questions and moderated recapping.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
