    This May 1st (tomorrow!), students, faculty, and the public are collaborating on a collective educational experiment: the Free University of NYC. Classes, teach-ins, skill shares, and more will be held in Madison Square Park (details + full schedule are here:

    We’re delighted to be facilitating a teach-in on open access scholarly publishing at the Free University of NYC. Guiding questions may include:

    – What is open access publishing?
    – Why is it important?
    – How can it help students, researchers, libraries, and the public?
    – Why are academics boycotting publishing giant Elsevier?
    – What are open access mandates and pledges?
    – Where can you find open access materials?
    – How can you make your own work openly-available?

    We’ll be at the South Fountain in Madison Square Park at 10am tomorrow. Look for our sign, and come on out and join us!

    –Jill, Alycia, and Maura
