Description

Did you know that access to research is often only available to those who have an employer or educational institution footing the (very expensive) bill? Information privilege affects those who need scholarly information to learn about health conditions, advocate for themselves, or improve their communities, but don't happen to work for or attend a university. What are the implications of only granting students and professors access to publicly-funded academic research? 

UNLV researchers, students, and instructors are invited to participate in a conversation to raise awareness of how academic work circulates online and the steps we can take to ensure our own work is accessible for everyday people around the globe.

Presenters: Chelsea Heinbach and Priscilla Finley
