Libraries to Observe Open Access Week Oct. 19-23

Oct. 13, 2009

The Baylor University Libraries have planned a series of events in observation of Open Access Week from October 19-23, 2009. Open Access is a growing international movement that encourages the unrestricted sharing of research results with everyone, everywhere, for the advancement and enjoyment of science and society. It is based on the principle that all research should be readily accessible online immediately after publication. The movement has been gaining momentum around the world as it is embraced by a growing number of universities, researchers, funders and policymakers.

We invite you to participate in any of the following events and engage the conversation about open access:
