On Tuesday 20th October 2015, to mark International Open Access Week, the Library of Trinity College Dublin will hold a public discussion forum entitled The Future of Monographs in a World of Open Access, as part of The Library of the Future; the Future of the Library, a programme of events for 2015-2016.
This forum will consider the place of monographs in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences disciplines, and how they fit into the developing world of Open Access. The starting point will be Professor Geoffrey Crossick’s HEFCE report on Monographs and Open Access. Professor Crossick, Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, School of Advanced Study, University of London, will be joined by a panel including Professor Darryl Jones, the Dean of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; Professor Nicholas Canny, Professor Emeritus of History at NUI, Galway; and Mr Christopher Pressler, Director of Library Services and the Historic Collections Research Centre, DCU. This substantive discussion will resonate with anyone interested in scholarly output, the future of publishing and Open Access.
