UCLA Library Celebrates Open Access Week

Monday, October 24th, 2011

In a year of breaking new ground the Research Library is sponsoring a different kind of campus event this Friday.  We are playing host to a creative conference for new modes of digital storytelling.  The event, DIY Days, is about building a community for ideas.  The event is a workshop to help creative people in the community to build and sustain projects through connecting storytelling with resources.  While this is not a traditional academic conference, a large portion of the participants and audience are from UCLA.  They have been drawn in by the notion that through a network of creative ideas and people creative ideas and projects will develop and grow.  This event will bring UCLA Library closer to the living, creative culture that is Los Angeles.  I hope you will stop by and see for yourself what the new Research Library is doing.
