May 26: Applying Subscribe to Open to Scholarly Books
On May 26th at 11am ET / 8am PT, SPARC will host a webcast in partnership with the Subscribe to Open (S2O) Community of Practice to discuss how S2O, a conditional open access revenue model, is being used to support the open dissemination of scholarly books. The 90-minute session will cover the perspectives of publishers currently using conditional open access offers for books, authors who have published their books openly, and libraries that have committed to supporting this model. The webcast will seek to highlight both the increasing opportunities to support S2O models for books and the benefits of doing so for authors and for libraries.
May 26: The Politics of Design: Designing for Justice and Equity
Design has often been considered as a means of changing existing situations into preferred ones. This workshop will focus on how design is inherently political as it gives form to power and authority, and shapes ways of living. How can we then think of design critically to not be complicit in perpetuating unequal power structures, and instead recognize and mobilise against injustices?
