Open Access Week

“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.
Now entering its eighthyear, International Open Access Week (October 20–26) is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access(OA), to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.
Atkins Library will celebrate Open Access Week by hosting a number of campus-wide webinars and workshops on topics relating to OA research and publishing. All events will be held in Atkins Room 271:
