City Tech Library and the Faculty Commons invite you to celebrate Open Access Month 2015* with a presentation and discussion featuring guest speakers: Megan Wacha (CUNY Office of Library Services) and Jessie Daniels (JustPublics@365).
How can your scholarship be more visible and meaningful? Reach new readers and make a difference in the world through open scholarship!

CUNY’s Academic Works is our new showcase for CUNY faculty scholarship and creative work and helps make scholarship more easily found and, accordingly, read and cited more often.
Make a difference in the world. JustPublics@365 (CUNY Graduate Center) is “reimagining scholarly communication for the public good.” This initiative teaches academics and others how they can use digital media to get their work out to broader audiences as well as how they can apply their work to social justice.
