International Open Access Week at the Library

From October 22 through October 26 the Michael Schwartz Library is celebrating International Open Access Week. Faculty, staff, and students can attend free webinars; browse the information table and OpenStax Book exhibit; bring questions about their scholarly communications to an "Ask the Experts" session; learn how to register for a unique Orcid digital identifier, and more. This year's theme is Designing Equitable Foundations for Open Knowledge.

About International Open Access Week

Academic and research communities are invited to learn how open access maximizes and promotes their work, provides stronger ownership for researchers and authors, and ultimately, has far reaching benefits for academia and society as a whole. Now in its eleventh year, "International Open Access Week" facilitates the growing movement toward increased discoverability, sharing, use and preservation of information.
