  • @Jenna Freedman Library Activities

    Bwog, I’m shocked, appalled, hurt, etc. that you don’t have these hot Barnard and Columbia Libraries events at the TOP of this week’s bucket list, with a suitably excited animated gif:

    Open Access Week at Barnard https://library.barnard.edu/news/Open-Access-Week-Barnard. We’ll be tabling outside the library on Tuesday 10-4, giving out stickers and being our charming, erudite, open access activist selves.

    Also on Tuesday, is Barnard’s stop on Elisha Lim and Vivek Shraya’s Crushes and Mountains book tour with queer prayers, songs, films, and readings from their new books 100 Crushes and She of the Mountains. We’re co-hosting this event with the Asian American Writers Workshop.

    On Thursday evening we’re screening the documentary The Internet’s Own Boy: the Story of Aaron Swartz. (Swartz is chiefly responsible for RSS feeds, Reddit and the Open Library. He committed suicide at the age of 26, facing charges for stealing articles from JSTOR. You definitely want to know more about him.) http://cdrs.columbia.edu/cdrsmain/2014/10/screening-of-internets-own-boy-the-story-of-aaron-swartz

    Personal librarianly yours, Jenna
