OpenCon 2018: Building a community of openness, advocacy, and activism

Debbie Feisst, Willa Tavernier


From November 2 through 4, 2018, we were fortunate to attend OpenCon 2018 in Toronto, Canada, through generous scholarships sponsored by ACRL. OpenCon is an annual opportunity to learn about open access, education, research, and data, and the 2018 conference marked OpenCon’s fifth meeting and the first time it had been held in Canada. OpenCon is known for its focus on youth and the next generation of Open advocacy.

We are pleased to share our reflections from OpenCon 2018.
