ASERL’s Open Access Week chat with Peter Suber
The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) today hosted a discussion with Peter Suber, Director of the Harvard Office of Scholarly Communications. Suber this week blogged in The Guardian to put to rest six myths of Open Access.
The format was an interactive interview with questions submitted by the online audience in real-time. My colleague Christine Fruin, ASERL’s Visiting Program Officer for Scholarly Communications, moderated the session.

He is widely considered the de facto leader of the worldwide open access movement.
