Celebrating Open Access Week at HLS

Implementing the Durham StatementThis week is Open Access Week, a global event that allows the “academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.”

In celebration of the week, the Harvard Law School Library has worked with Duke Law School’s J. Michael Goodson Law Library and Center for the Public Domain to organize Implementing the Durham Statement: Best Practices for Open Access Law Journals, a day long workshop to be held on Friday, October 22, 2010.

Readings and links for the event are available through the social bookmarking service del.icio.us.

Most of the event will be held at Duke Law School, but the final 3:30-4:00pm wrap up session will be held at Harvard Law School, Ames Courtroom, Austin Hall. The Dean of Students Office and Harvard’s Office for Scholarly Communication will be hosting a special webcast of the entire workshop being held at Duke Law, with a lunch featuring a panel of law school journal editors discussing their experience with open access issues. This event is open to the public ! (RSVP is encouraged for the lunchtime panel for catering purposes.) Visit our website for more details about the event at HLS.

We hope to see many of you there!

Viewers will be able to submit questions to workshop coordinators via Twitter (hashtag: #durhamOA) and [email protected]
