Open Access Week will be happening 22 - 28 October. At the university where I work librarians are planning a variety of events.
We want to do something for undergraduates, to tell them about open access, what it is, how it works, why it's important, what it means to them ... but in previous OA Week chats with undergrads their main concern was whether it would mean they could have free textbooks. Which in a way it does, but not in a way that's going to help them this year or next.
Why should undergraduates care about open access? Why should a second-year student who's busy with classes, has some expensive textbooks, and has a part-time job and some debt, care about OA? I am curious to know what methods people have found that speak well to this audience about open access.
