Save the date for Unlocking Open Access: Making it work for publishers, authors, and institutions

Date: Friday, 17 October

Location: Craftsman Inn, Fayetteville, NY

Please plan on joining the Upstate New York chapter of SLA (UNYSLA) to dig deep into the evolving world of open access. Open access content is only free to the end user. In this program we’ll view open access from the perspective of publishers, authors, and institutions as we learn how they make the business case to promote open access.
