Open Access Week (October 22-28, 2012)
University at Albany - The University at Albany Libraries are celebrating Open Access Week 2012 with exhibits and a program of activities on Tuesday October 23.
Open Access Week, a global event now entering its 6th year, is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn more about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they've learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in making Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research. Open Access to information - the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as needed - has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and society as a whole.
University at Buffalo Libraries offered an extensive array of programs during OA Week:
Brockport - "Giving and Getting Access to Scholarly and Instructional Materials" Friday, October 26th, a One-day conference on issues surrounding recent Georgia State case, intellectual property, fair use, open access and more.
Jamestown and Banned Books Week
