Open Access Week 2016

What's Open Access?

What's Open Access?

  • Open Access (OA) is the free, immediate, online availability of scholarship.
  • Often, OA scholarship is also free of accompanying copyright or licensing reuse restrictions, promoting further innovation.
  • OA removes barriers between readers and scholarly publication, making it easier for everyone to find, use, cite, and build upon knowledge and ideas.
  • OA connects readers to information, and scholars to emerging scholarship and other authors whom they can collaborate with or whose work they can build upon. 

Open Access Week @ UC Berkeley

  • OA Week 2016 is a global effort to highlight the connections that OA makes possible.
  • At UC Berkeley, the University Library has put together exciting programming demonstrating the network of OA connections and implications--with workshops covering everything from how your dissertation will be published, to how you can publish your data for maximum impact, or how your digital humanities project will be preserved for future generations.
  • We hope to see you at these exciting programs. To register, please use the links in the Schedule below.
  • You can also talk to a Library Expert from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Oct. 24-28 at:
    • North Gate Hall (Mon, Tue)
    • Kroeber Hall (Wed - Fri)
  • Event attendance and table visits earn raffle tickets for a prize drawing on October 28!

DIGITAL HUMANITIES FOR TOMORROW

What will happen to your work after you move on? What does DH preservation look like? What is most important for you in ensuring your work is available to forthcoming scholars? How can the University Library and DH group support your goals? Space at this special DH Salon is limited, so please register in advance. Presented by the UC Berkeley Library and Scott Paul McGinnis, PhD Candidate in History.
