Free webinar | 2:00 PM-3:00 PM Eastern
In a climate of anti-intellectualism, institutions of higher education remain committed to making knowledge accessible and translating research to help solve society’s pressing challenges. Libraries have long served as stewards of research publications and creative academic output, facilitating access. How are they serving both as advisors to help scholars and students be more productive in accessing and utilizing scholarship throughout the research cycle, and as institutional partners to ensure their university’s research output is globally findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable towards the aim of greater open access, and impact?
This webinar will be recorded. Closed captioning via Otter Ai will be provided for this webinar.
