Invitation to Open Access Forum

The Graduate School of Library and Information Science, the University Library, and the Office of Technology Management of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are proud to present:

A Forum on Open Access, Alternative Publishing Models, and Author Rights

November 9, 2007
8:30 am – 3:00 pm
Alice Campbell Alumni Center, Ballroom

Complimentary breakfast and lunch provided.

The objective of this forum is to inform and engage faculty, graduate students, and other campus researchers concerning open access to intellectual property. Interested undergraduates are also welcome. Topics will include current trends and issues in scholarly communication, open access and teaching, open access and tools for discovery, and the potential for open access to increase the dissemination and impact of research publications. This forum will also discuss various models for, or degrees of, openness, from open-access institutional repositories (like the University of Illinois' IDEALS) to other alternative publishing models, including independent and non-profit open-access publishing, as well as low-cost commercial publishing.

Registration is complimentary but required before November 2, 2007.
