WALDO Open Access Forum
at the Fordham University Library, Rose Hill campus, Bronx, NY

Join us on Tuesday, March 8 for a forum on Open Access sponsored by WALDO (Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization). As the cost of journals and other scholarship are rising to unprecedented levels, academic libraries are turning more and more to open access publishing initiatives to increase information access and innovation. Our three panelists will discuss open access from various points of view and various experiences in their institutions.
