Talis Insight Webinars 2021

Keeping Up With The Evolving Role Of The Library

An online event for Higher Education professionals. 27th-30th April 2021.

Sign up for The Open Access Mystery on the 28th April

In this exciting Open Access themed mystery you’ll join a conference as one of eight characters who may or may not know each other from previous events and/or collaborations. During the conference disaster will strike, and it’s up to you to figure out who’s behind what turns out to be a global lockdown of all research. Will it be the Professor who relies on the h-index? The early career researcher with imposter syndrome? The problem solver who works in publishing? Or perhaps it’s the paranoid researcher who thinks you’ve stolen her ideas? Pay attention, not all is as it seems…

Sign up is required for this activity! You’ll be assigned a character before joining the session and you will receive some background information about your character at this point. Dressing up as your interpretation of the character is encouraged! There are limited spaces, so please register your interest below and we’ll get back to you with more details on how to join.

The Open Access Mystery was developed by Katrine Sundsbø in 2020 as a response to the lack of engagement opportunities at conferences and other events due to the shift to remote working. Katrine is currently on maternity leave. In her place, Hannah Pyman (Scholarly Communications and Research Support Manager), Clarissa St Yves (Scholarly Communications Co-Ordinator), and Keziah Gibbs (Information Literacy Co-ordinator), all from the University of Essex, will be delivering these four sessions.
