Presented at the SPARC Open Access Meeting 2014 in Kansas City, MO on March 3, 2014.

Abstract: How do you engage undergraduate students with topics to do with open access to research on the Internet? Offer them popcorn, candy and comedy, of course! To celebrate Open Access Week 2013, MacEwan University Library held an Open Access Comedy Film Festival. The event featured daily showings of films that have entered the public domain from the likes of Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and The Three Stooges, along with brief introductions to what open access research journals are and where to find them online. The event turned out to be a uniquely fun and successful way to engage the university community with not only the open access movement but related efforts that embrace the free online exchange of ideas and creativity. Learn about how the event came together as well as recommendations the organizer has to offer anyone who is inspired to host a similar event at their own college or university.
