For local events on campus during Open Access Week, please see the Schedule of Events

October 20-26th, 2014 marks the 8th Annual Open Access Week. Academics and researchers are facing exciting changes as the global momentum toward open sharing of scholarship and research continues to grow.  Open Access (OA) aims to provide access to scholarly literature with the right to copy, distribute, and use that information so long as the author is credited. Work that is published in an OA journal is free, timely, and available online – meaning that it is available to everyone.
