Open access to research and scholarship has been facilitated by digital technology. Today there are many open access peer reviewed academic journals represented in the Directory of Open Access Journals (http://www.doaj.org/) and many more journals allow archiving of your work in web accessible places, see this site for details on a particular title (http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/).
In order to foster awareness of the open access movement on campus, the University Libraries are organizing a series of activities during the week of 18-22 October, designated as National Open Access Week. These activities will include webcasts, workshops, and awareness tables. Below you will find the time and place of those activities.
