Open Access Week Film Screening Invite

Dear Faculty,

Open Access Week is October 22-28!

Please join the Campus Library for a screening of “Paywall: The Business of Scholarship.” Learn more about the business of scholarship and the costs involved with the current practices of scholarly dissemination and information access.

The screening will be held on Monday October 22nd at 1:30PM in Library room LB1-205.

From the director and producers of this documentary:

“Paywall: The Business of Scholarship is a documentary which focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $25.2 billion a year that flows into for-profit academic publishers, examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier and looks at how that profit margin is often greater than some of the most profitable tech companies like Apple, Facebook and Google.”

We hope to see you there!

The Campus Library OA Team
