ACRL Presents: Celebrating Open Access Week 2021

ACRL is excited to offer a free webcast in celebration of Open Access Week. Tune in at 1:00 p.m. Central on Monday, October 25, for “Celebrating Open Access Week: Scaling Open to Fit Local Needs.”

Institutions’ approaches to ‘Open’ movements, specifically Open Access and Open Educational Resources, can vary wildly depending on institutional size, financial situation, staff availability, and community needs. Projects need to be adapted to meet the unique nature of each institution. Join authors from ACRL’s The Scholarly Communications Cookbook to learn how librarians at all kinds of institutions can adapt workshops, consultations, and other projects to their local needs. This panel consists of recipe authors from different institution types: a regional comprehensive university, an R-1 flagship university, a private university, and a community college system. Panelists will describe some of the open initiatives at their institutions and how they have scaled the project to their specific needs. They will also offer suggestions for adapting open projects to your needs.

This panel is moderated by editors of The Scholarly Communications Cookbook, Emily Bongiovanni, Scholarly Communications Librarian, and Brianna Buljung, Teaching & Learning Librarian, both of the Colorado School of Mines.
