|Gavin Baker is a SPARC Outreach Fellow and has developed SPARC’s “The Right to Research” student outreach campaign. He is an assistant editor at the Open Access News blog, community manager of “Open Students,” a blog for students about Open Access, and a columnist in Science Progress. As a student, he co-founded University of Florida’s Students for Free Culture chapter, served on a National Students for Free Culture board, and was elected to the university’s Student Senate. In large part because of this work, University of Florida passed the first university-wide resolution supporting open access. On May 27, 2008 he presented a talk entitled “The Right to Research” in the Beatley Library at Simmons College.
