The Access 2015 Organizing Committee is thrilled to announce that our keynote speaker is Amy Buckland!
Amy recently moved to the University of Chicago where she is the Institutional Repository Manager. Previously she was Coordinator of Scholarly Communications at McGill University Library, where she was responsible for open access initiatives, publishing support, copyright, digital humanities, and research data services. She has a bachelor of arts degree from Concordia University (Montreal) where she studied political science and women’s studies, and an MLIS from McGill University. Prior to joining the library world, she worked in publishing for 14 years, and thinks academic libraryland is ripe for a revolution.
Given Amy’s longstanding participation at and with Access over the years and her long-standing involvement in Canadian – and now American – library tech communities, the Organizing Committee was unanimous in its opinion that Amy would be a perfect choice to anchor the conference. For more information, check out her website or connect with her on twitter at @jambina.
Keep an eye out for the announcement of our 2015 David Binkley Memorial Lecture speaker, coming soon!
