facilitators, and advocates between authors and publishers.

“Patrons don't care whether the content is "free" or "paid" as long as
it is free to them. They just want resources that are applicable to
their research needs.” Reference and Research Librarian, Discovery of
Free Online Content survey

Following on from our survey: Discovery of Free Online Content, we’d
like to invite you to share your views on the some of the fascinating
insights we received from your comments. We had over 400 responses to
our survey so thank you to everyone that participated! We thought what
better way to celebrate free online content, than to throw a Twitter
party during Open Access Week.

Time: 10:00 AM, EDT
The hash tag for this event is: #tfdiscovery hosted on the Library
