Title of Talk: “Opening Up the Margins”
Description: The Open Access movement has helped to make scholarly materials more widely available to researchers across the globe. However, it has also helped to open the doors for scholars, typically excluded from scholarly discourse, to participate in forming the scholarly record. This talk will explore some of the ways in which open helps to bring in voices from the margins and what we can do as information professionals to help ensure more marginalized voices are welcomed into the mainstream of scholarly discourse.
Lunch will be provided. Space is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
