Subject: [EIFLoa] Help Promote the Open Access White House Petition

[Forwarded message from Andrea Higginbotham]

Hello All!

We're on our way to surpassing 20,000 signatures on the White House Open Access petition  - in just one week!  - and we need your help to close this out successfully.

To help drive this effort  home, please consider sending out one more email blast to your contact lists. This is a truly effective way of not only getting the word out, but also of showing your support.  Consider a "+1" email request  - encouraging those on your network who have already signed to recruit a friend or colleague to sign, to be their "+1." It's a great way to include new voices into the mix!

Our social media efforts have been phenomenally effective - Twitter is aglow with references to #openaccess<https://twitter.com/#%21/search/%23openaccess> and #OAMonday<https://twitter.com/#%21/search/%23OAMonday> so please use these hashtags if you tweet. Facebook is also a great way of getting the petition link out to all of your friends - you can add a link directly to the petition in your Facebook posting to make it easy for folks to sign.

Here are a few links to include in your email blasts, and to spread far and wide in your social media endeavors:
