Dacus Library wants you to help us celebrate International Open Access Week by discovering more about Open Access this week and all year ’round. If you’re not sure what Open Access refers to, take a look at Peter Suber’s Very Brief Introduction to Open Access. This helps clarify what we’re talking about this week and what we’re promoting.
Dacus Library will be hosting an event called Discover More About Open Access on Friday, October 27, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Dacus Library. It’ll be a great way to educate yourself better on open access resources, such as Winthrop’s open access repository, Digital Commons, for publishing your scholarship, open access textbooks (free textbooks? yes please!), and much more. We’ll have some wonderful speakers from around campus, some informational stations to visit and some yummy refreshments. We’ll even have a drawing for door prizes, so please spread the word about this event. For more information about the presentations please see the following: Discover More About Open Access. We hope to see you Friday afternoon!
