To celebrate the International Open Access Week (24–30 October 2016), the Library is holding an Open Access Day.
When: 26 October
Where: Fisher Library: Seminar Room and Exhibition Space, Level 2
As part of the day we will host a debate on open access publishing featuring speakers from Sydney University Press and UTS ePress (more to be announced), a series of talks and drop-in sessions about funding requirements as specified by NHMRC and ARC, the University of Sydney’s approach to open access – our policy and procedures, copyrights issues, support available at the Library, open data and more. This is an opportunity for you to learn about open access, share your thoughts and concerns, and ask questions.
So… If you are perplexed, or simply want to know more about open access, please mark the date of 26 October in your diary.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Open Access Day, whether you attend the whole day or simply drop into the sessions that interest you. We can assure you that you’ll learn something new and be part of an exciting and invigorating day.
