Reading about Open Access can be hard. So we have videos

It's almost the end of Open Access Week and I don't know about you, but I'm having a hard time reading large amounts of text on a Friday afternoon. If you are in the same boat, then you might appreciate these videos about Open Access.

The first is called What is Open Access and is drawn by Jorge Cham of PHD Comics:

What is Open Access from PHD Comics

 

(If you are in graduate school (or have survived it), then you really should check out PHD Comics. You can read them online or you can borrow the anthology from Leddy Library.)

The second video is from Leddy Library's own Dave Johnson who also gives an introduction to Open Access but puts it in a local context and gives some history about this year's Academic Spring.

And because you, my dear reader, have found the strength to get through all the words above, I give you a silly I game I made for Open Access Week using Game-o-Matic.
