Library Support for UW Faculty Open Access Policy

Hello from the Campus Library Open Access Team and welcome back! As you settle into the new quarter, we wanted to highlight how the Open Access Team and the Library can help you make your work more openly available.

If you are ready to deposit scholarly work into UW’s institutional repository, ResearchWorks, instructions are available on the UWB Digital Scholarship Guide.

For questions related to the UW Open Access Policy, please contact Sarah Leadley, Associate Dean and Library Director, at, or Denise Hattwig, Head of Digital Scholarship and Collections, at
