Monday, December 07, 2020 at 4:00pmVirtual Event
Co-hosted by the MIT Libraries and the MIT Press
Declining trust in science, combined with the urgency of global challenges such as the COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, and racial and economic inequality, have highlighted the need for more open and equitable access to credible science and scholarship. Libraries, university presses, and faculty all play a critical role in the scholarly communications ecosystem. At this panel, we will hear how the MIT Libraries, the MIT Press, and MIT faculty are engaging in the movements for open science and open scholarship.
Join us to hear from Chris Bourg, Director of the Libraries, Amy Brand, Director of the MIT Press, and Roger Levy, Associate Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences and Chair of the Committee on the Library System, about the current status and future vision of scholarly research and publishing activities at MIT and beyond.
