Presentation Open Access

Bringing Open Scholarship and Open Education to the Public through an Academic/Public Library Collaboration

Murray 🦇, Matthew; Tyschenko, Emily; Regier, Ryan

The open access movement has become a part of the status quo in academia, but how important is it to the general public? This talk summarises the results of efforts by the University of Guelph, who began by running a successful workshop at the university on how to access scholarly literature after graduation, and who have now established partnerships with the public library and a local community space in order to run sessions on accessing scholarly literature and the current challenges of information access.
