Published on

Presented at the Canadian Library Association 2011 Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia in May 2011. (A similar presentation was delivered at the NEOS Miniconference in June 2011 with the title "The Open Access Student: Not an Open-and-Shut Case").

Abstract: Librarians strive to encourage students’ lifelong learning and critical thinking skills. Enhancing their awareness of Open Access resources in an increasingly complex digital information landscape furthers this objective. This session will explore ways librarians are promoting OA publications, focusing specifically on how these resources can enrich students’ lives now and for years to come.
