In library school we hear a lot about open access. When I first began my program, I had only a foggy idea of what open access meant or why it was important. This film about Aaron Swartz, internet activist and co-founder of Reddit, put everything into perspective for me. I promise it’s well worth two hours of your time. Warning: it’s also a bit of a tear-jerker.

I thought short film The Library was great and looked beautiful, also enjoyed finding out about how and why it was made.

The Lives and Deaths of Academic Library Staplers highlights this important issue, is amusing.
