Research Done Right: Working with Your Library to Turn Scholarly Information into Open Knowledge

Open scholarship is more inclusive, is read and cited at higher rates, and gives scholars more control over their work. Under recently-released guidance from the White House, open knowledge is also required by most major funders. But many researchers may need some guidance on the finer points of open licenses, online sharing, and inclusive practices. Fortunately, your library is here to help.

Join Will Cross, Director of the Open Knowledge Center and current Fulbright Fellow, to learn more about how libraries play a unique role in open knowledge around the world and how experts on Yale’s campus can save you time, help you find new audiences, and make a broader impact on the world around you.
