Join us for a film screening of Paywall: The Business of Scholarship

October 24, 3-5 p.m.

Thomspon Library, Room 165

As part of Open Access Week, join us for a screening of the documentary Paywall: The Business of Scholarship, a film that focuses on the need for open access to research and science, questions the rationale behind the $10-25 billion a year that flows to for-profit academic publishers, and examines the 35-40% profit margin associated with the top academic publisher Elsevier. After the hour long film, stay for a panel-facilitated audience discussion.

Light refreshments will be served.

Sponsored by the University Libraries’ Research Commons and Scholarly Sharing Program Area and the Health Sciences Library.
