During Open Access Week, taking place this year from Oct. 21 – 27, 2013, academic institutions around the globe explore the ideal of free, full‐text, immediate, online access to peer‐reviewed scholarship so new ideas and information can be obtained rapidly and freely by everyone.

The University Libraries will continue its series of Scholarly Publishing Conversations with the goal of raising awareness about the challenges, opportunities, and scholarly and academic resources available through Open Access initiatives.

The panel discussion "In Defense of the Book: The Future of the Scholarly Monograph," will consider why the scholarly monograph is valued in academia, what aspects of these books are most important, and will explore other ways to achieve those valuable aspects. 

Featured UA panelists will lead the conversation:

-Kristen Buckles, Acquiring Editor, University of Arizona Press
-Jerry Hogle, Professor, English Department and University Distinguished Professor
-Katherine Morrissey, Associate Professor, History Department

The panel discussion is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
