OA Week Event at Hunter

  • Hi all,

    Just wanted to let everyone in the group know about the following event that will be happening at Hunter on the Thursday of OA Week (10/27). It’s something the library is offering in conjunction with Hunter’s Gene Center (details below). Feel free to contact me with any questions:

    As part of Open Access Week 2011, Hunter College will be hosting a talk by Robert Schatz, North American Sales Manager for open access publisher BioMed Central. Mr. Schatz will offer an overview of open access publishing in science, technology, and medical fields, along with an inside look at the workings of BioMed Central and its parent company, Springer Science & Business Media. Librarians and working scientists or researchers alike are invited to attend.

    The event will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 3-5 pm. The venue is the Gene Center (at Hunter College), in its Internet2 Video Collaboration Facility, 695 Park Avenue, Room HN 310. We hope to see you there!

    There’s also a posting about it on our library blog:
