During Open Education Month, University Libraries will raise awareness about free and open educational resources (OER). These resources encompass teaching, learning, and research materials that are in the public domain or have been released with an open license. OER includes required course materials, such as textbooks and problem sets, which can help make college more affordable. University Libraries joins hundreds of other universities, colleges, schools and organizations from all over the world to showcase what we’re doing to improve educational access. Join us in celebrating Open Education Month by attending this panel on the UA Open Access Policy.
Last April the UA Faculty Senate passed an open access policy calling on UA faculty to disseminate their journal articles to the widest possible audience through the UA Campus Repository. At this session we'll hear why panelists support open access and a report on repository activities during the first year of the policy.
