Join the Holy Cross Libraries and the Department of Computer Science for a screening of the documentary "The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz" as part of International Open Access Week.

This film tells the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz, who helped develop the basic internet protocol RSS and co-founded Reddit. His work in social justice and political organizing, and his aggressive approach to information access, ensnared him in a 2-year legal battle with the Federal government which ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26.

The event will take place Thursday, Oct. 24 in Seelos Theatre at 6:00pm. Doors open at 5:30, and light refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to the public. For any questions, contact Digital Scholarship Librarian Lisa Villa at 508-793-2767, or lvilla@holycross.
