Open Source: the Public Knowledge Project

I just heard about a new and exciting project happening on the west coast. It is an advocacy project dedicated to improving the scholarly and public quality of research. The project is a partnership between UBC, SFU and the Canadian Centre for Studies in Publishing that brings together faculty, librarians, and graduate students. It is going to be really interesting to see how this group comes together to find a way to make academic knowledge more publicly accessible. I really hope as a future public librarian to see positive results from this project. Check it out at: http://pkp.sfu.ca/about
