Open Access Week
Please join us for a University Library sponsored Open Access Week at the University of Michigan. Open Access is the free, permanent, online access to information.
The keynote event is- Open Access and the Academy: A Lively Discussion on the Future of Scholarly Publishing. This event will be on Tuesday, March 24th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm at the Hatcher Graduate Library Gallery.
The panel will be moderated by our own, Paul Courant, and will include scholarly publishing giants Jasna Markovac, Heather Joseph, Jean-Claude Guédon and Vivian Siegel.
The other event that I am sure you will want to attend is the Natural Language Processing: Legal Challenges panel on Wednesday, March 25th. Jack Bernard from General Counsel’s office, Kathleen Folger and John Wilkin from the University Library will be there to talk about the who, what, where, when and how’s of copyright and acquiring the text needed for NLP. This panel discussion will be moderated by myself (I know…) and takes place at the Biomedical Research Sciences Building’s auditorium (the Pringle) at Noon. Yahoo!

See you there!
