Library kicks off Open Access Week with talks, tips, treats

On Monday, the University Library kicked off the first of five days of Open Access programming, designed to help Berkeley students better understand and utilize Open Access publishing. Workshops cover 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. Check out the full program and follow the action live on Twitter.

Open Access Week is a global effort to highlight the connections that OA makes possible by removing barriers between readers and scholarly publication. Through OA, people around the world can more easily find, use, cite, and build upon knowledge and ideas.
