Two upcoming events on the topic of open access will be held in the Rapaporte Treasure Hall, in Goldfarb Library.
The first, on Wednesday, December 5th at 11 a.m., will be a conversation with William Scott, emeritus professor of classics at Dartmouth, who recently published an open-access monograph (The Artistry of the Homeric Simile) made simultaneously available in print-on-demand and as an ebook. He has had an interesting and positive experience in this experiment, and if you’re curious about open access from a humanities point of view, I hope you’ll come.
The second event, on Thursday, December 6th at 2:30 p.m., gives us an opportunity to talk to Suzanne Kriegsman, from Harvard’s Office for Scholarly Communication, about how and why faculty governance bodies at universities here and elsewhere have developed consensus on open access. She will be ready to address questions about open access across the disciplines, and she has experience in working with professional schools as well.
