As you might be aware, it's Open Access Week! Now in its 8th year, this
annual event highlights the importance of free licensing in scholarly
research. It's a cause strongly aligned with what Wikimedians do.

There are at least two online events involving Wikimedia that you can
engage with regardless of where you live:
* A weeklong virtual edit-a-thon, for Wikipedia articles relating to OA:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikipedia_Library/OA_week
* A panel discussion I will moderate next week, about the intersection of
Wikimedia and OA: http://wikistrategies.net/oa-wikipedia-panel/ (This will
be in the evening in the Americas, morning in Asia/Australia; recording
will be available too.)

There are several other, more local events involving Wikipedia and OA:

What's happening in your community? Are you planning to participate in any
OA Week activities?
