Think Like A Scholar: How to Find Free and Open Access Scholarly Resources (Burnaby Festival of Learning) Online
Over the past few decades the research outputs from universities, governments, and other organizations have become increasingly accessible to the general public and there are now many routes for individuals to access the same information that professional researchers do. Librarians from BCIT will explain how you can search and access this information for free. We will discuss databases such as Google Scholar and PubMed, full-text finders like Unpaywall, the copyright exceptions that allow article sharing, and a multitude of other information resources that are available.
When he’s not working as the Data and Graduate Studies Librarian at BCIT, Matthew spends his time co-hosting Book Club for Masochists: A Readers’ Advisory Podcast, co-organizing the Manga in Libraries series of webinars and the Toronto Comic Arts Festival’s Libraries & Education Day, editing the zine Two-Fisted Library Stories, and trying to read all of the comics ever. He also does Library/Education promotion for Manga Classics and is probably on Twitter far more than is healthy.
Outreach Librarian at BCIT has worked in libraries for a long time and is excited to see more and more previously restricted information become accessible for all.
