October is here, which means it's time to celebrate Open Access Week (OA Week). Each year's OA Week is guided by a theme, and this year focuses on knowledge equity:
It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity
Visit KSL's second floor between October 25-31st to find an OA Week Table with information about the basics of Open Access and why it matters. Collect one of our OA Week buttons, take a flier, and Ask a Librarian about equitable access to open knowledge on this campus and beyond. If you're looking for examples of amazing open resources online, explore:
Independent Voices (Reveal Digital, JSTOR)
These OA periodicals were produced by feminists, dissident GIs, campus radicals, Native Americans, anti-war activists, Black Power advocates, Hispanics, LGBT activists, the extreme right-wing press, and alternative literary magazines during the latter half of the 20th century.
Open Library of Humanities
Publishes internationally leading, rigorous and peer-reviewed scholarship across the humanities disciplines: from classics, theology & philosophy, to modern languages & literatures, film and media studies, anthropology, political theory, and sociology.
