Open Access Symposium – October 22

Wright State University/Cleveland State University Joint Open Access Symposium
October 22, 2014, 9:15am – 3:45pm; Room 441, Dunbar Library

The Wright State University Libraries, the Friends of the Libraries, and Digital Services invite you to the Wright State University/Cleveland State University Joint Open Access Symposium. This event will feature speakers on the topic of copyright, open access, and open data, with a Keynote presented by Dr. Caroline Whitacre, VP for Research at The Ohio State University, who will speak about the SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem) Initiative on which she is a steering group committee member. SHARE, born out of the White House initiative calling for the free and open sharing of publicly funded research, is a steering group that pulls together stakeholders from the research community to guide policy and build the infrastructure for storing, preserving, and sharing research and data.

View the symposium schedule and feel free to drop in and out throughout the day. To view Ann Taylor and Caroline Whitacre remotely, go to http://www.wright.edu/streaming.

This event is free to attend for Wright State Faculty and Staff. Refreshments will be provided. Contact Jane Wildermuth with any questions.
