Due to The Graduate Center’s coronavirus update, this workshop has been canceled. We will look to hold this event at some point in the future.

Room 3317. Co-sponsored by the Mina Rees Library.

Sometimes you write for other scholars, and sometimes you write for the broader public. But is there really such a stark distinction between audiences? When the public can access your scholarly works as well, you can reach readers you never imagined. Furthermore, your research can be discussed, cited, linked to, and built on in ways you never expected. We will discuss the many reasons to make your scholarly works open access, and cover best practices for ensuring long-term access for all.

Space is limited. Please reserve your spot by booking below.

Jill Cirasella is the Graduate Center’s Associate Librarian for Scholarly Communication & Digital Scholarship. In this position, she oversees scholarly communication initiatives, thesis/dissertation services, and digital scholarship and preservation services. Her research focus is scholarly communication, broadly construed: recent projects examine anxieties surrounding open access dissertations, attitudes about practice-based library literature, and the professional experiences of hard-of-hearing librarians. She is committed to advancing ethical, community-led open access initiatives and serves on the boards of three open access journals.
