Guelph Voices of Open Access
Oct 21, 2010
Should scholarly research be freely accessible online to everyone?
Whether you imagine a researcher seeking to reach scholars in developing countries, a community practitioner needing up-to-date data, or a recent university graduate seeking scholarly information on a topic, it becomes easy to see how free online access to peer-reviewed scientific information and discoveries benefits our communities and society as a whole.
Guelph Voices of Open Access will connect scholars and community members to this global movement that seeks free open sharing of research findings. Speakers include:
Mike Ridley: Chief Information Officer, Chief Librarian, University of Guelph
Beverley Hale: Associate Dean, Ontario Agricultural College, Professor, School of Environmental Sciences, University of Guelph
Ajay Heble: Professor, School of English and Theatre Studies, University of Guelph, Artistic Director, The Guelph Jazz Festival, Project Director, Improvisation, Community, and Social Practice
Sarah Hook: PhD Candidate, Animal & Poultry Science, University of Guelph
Sarah Haanstra: Social Planning Director, United Way
Talks will be followed by discussions and refreshments.
