Ownership, Dissemination and Retention

Open access to scholarly literature is currently a hot topic among
librarians, publishers, and scholars alike.  But what is open access?  
Does it mean that scholarly information should be "free" or is there more
to it than that? What benefits and drawbacks does it offer each of the
major stakeholders in the scholarly communication process?  Please join us
for a stimulating dialogue on this complex issue featuring five
outstanding speakers.
