Open Access Symposium Nov. 4-5


The J. Murrey Atkins Library at the UNC Charlotte advances intellectual discovery by connecting people with knowledge.  We are hosting this Open Access Symposium in coordination with the International Open Access Week, a global event now entering its sixth year. It's an opportunity for researchers, librarians, students, and publishers to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, 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.
