Community calls for people interested in learning, educating and advocating for Open Access, Open Education and Open Data. Join us once a month for calls to leave you better connected to the global community advocating for these causes with new knowledge, ideas and enthusiasm.
We are excited to have Ivy Anderson, Associate Executive Director of California Digital Library and Jeffrey MacKie-Mason, University Librarian & Professor, UC Berkeley to discuss their experience in big deal negotiations with the publishing giant Elsevier. Q&A to follow an overview of their experience and what comes next. For more information concerning UC’s cancelation of Elsevier see here.
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.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
