This week the Library is participating in international Open Access Week! Open Access Week is a celebration of shared knowledge, open scholarship, and barrier-free research and scholarly publishing. Learn more about Open Access Week on their website.
The UW Libraries has assembled an inspiring collection of voices from across the University of Washington describing faculty and staff experiences with open access and with practicing open scholarship and research. This project is called “How I Work Open.” Please stop by the Library to see posters featuring your colleagues’ stories! These stories are also posted on the UW Libraries’ new open access blog, Open @ UW . Keep an eye out for UWB IAS Senior Lecturer Julie Shayne and UWB/CC Library Digital Scholarship + Collections Curator Denise Hattwig.
And as a reminder, here are links to our UWB/CC Library open access resources:
- Blog: Scholarly Publishing & Open Access | UW Bothell Library
- Library Guide: Scholarly Publishing and Open Access Guide
Please contact Sarah Leadley, Library Director, or your subject librarian if you’d like to talk more about open access or how you can “work open!”
