Screening: "Paywall: The Business of Scholarship"

The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art and the University Libraries will host a free screening of the documentary, "Paywall: The Business of Scholarship" on Wednesday, October 24 from 1- 3 p.m. at the Barrick Museum. 

Academics need access to ideas. Paywall investigates the world of academic publishing, challenging the power of for-profit academic publishing houses and the inequalities they perpetuate around the globe. With increasing numbers of researchers using Creative Commons licenses to circulate their work, this documentary questions the rationale behind a business model that costs our institutions $25.2 billion per year.

Following the movie, there will be a Q&A with Cory Tucker, Head of Collections and Continuing Resources, and Andrea Wirth, Scholarly Communication Librarian, to discuss how topics covered in the film have affected UNLV and how the University Libraries work to improve the scholarly communication landscape.

This event is presented as a collaboration between the Barrick Museum and UNLV University Libraries.
