The Internet lets us share perfect copies of our work with a worldwide audience at virtually no cost. We take advantage of this revolutionary opportunity when we make our work “open access”: digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. Open access is made possible by the Internet and copyright-holder consent, and many authors, musicians, filmmakers, and other creators who depend on royalties are understandably unwilling to give their consent. But for 350 years, scholars have written peer-reviewed journal articles for impact, not for money, and are free to consent to open access without losing revenue. In this concise introduction, Peter Suber tells us what open access is and isn’t, how it benefits authors and readers of research, how we pay for it, how it avoids copyright problems, how it has moved from the periphery to the mainstream, and what its future may hold. Distilling a decade of Suber’s influential writing and thinking about open access, this is the indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers.

"Openness" which has become a hallmark of the new Web has long been a mission in libraries. The philosophy of free and open access to information and technology has become a critical subject for information and technology leaders and practitioners. This course will explore the role and participation of library science and librarians in this movement. This course will give an overview of open-source technologies (such as content management systems and ILS programs) which are being used by libraries today, as well as exploring the open access movement which advocates free online access to scholarly research and journal articles. During the course we will also discuss open courses and learning, open conferences, and open licenses (like GPL and Creative Commons). This practical knowledge will be taught with an eye towards students understanding the implications of open access and what it means for libraries and librarians. (less)

The Opposite(s) of Property: An interdisciplinary investigation of property and its borders

Public lands, unownable ideas, markets for eggs and surrogates, slaves in court, the economics of sharing . . . . These were some of the issues discussed at this Duke Law School event. The workshop was prompted by the publication of James Boyle’s book, The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind (Yale University Press 2008), but its topic was also a wider one. The workshop does not claim some essential common thread links each of these inquiries together. Instead, it offered essayistic contributions from a distinguished and diverse group of panelists and commentators each of whom has, in their own way, explored the margins, the edges, and the opposites of property. Do those different investigations shed light on each other? View the workshop seesions to find out. (less)

"A group of professors and graduate students from around the world has started a new university of their own online, with an unusual model that is more like a book group than a traditional course," reports the Chronicle of Higher Education. "The new institution, called Peer2Peer University (for peer to peer), was announced last year and was originally slated to start offering courses in January. But logistical issues forced the fledgling project to delay its official opening until last week." (less)
