It’s international Open Access Week 2012, when librarians and researchers around the globe are talking about OA and related issues. Here at Wake Forest, I led a workshop for faculty and staff on fair use and copyright in teaching and scholarship Thursday afternoon (slides). On Tuesday, I gave a guest lecture on OA to faculty at Furman University (slides).
The guys behind PhD Comics have created a fun video explaining OA. While it focuses only on OA journal publishing, and is science-specific, it’s a wonderful, quick primer on the principles of OA. Enjoy!
