On February 26, 2015, Dr. David Carr joined us for a discussion about the potential of, and challenges facing, a cultural institution in the modern age. Carr speaks, writes, and teaches about the value of cultural institutions as essential instruments for nourishing public imaginations in democratic societies.
On March 10, 2014 we welcomed Rick Anderson to give the second lecture in The Future of Access series. Rick's talk discussed how Open Access (OA), like every other publishing or distribution model, carries with it both benefits and costs. But unlike other models, OA is built on a foundation of values and beliefs about how scholarly communication ought to be conducted-this makes conversations about its costs and benefits both difficult and fraught with passion. What can we do to make the scholarly communication space more amenable to open discussion about Open Access?
