Expanding Open Access Scholarship on Your Campus: A Statewide Panel Discussion Online

Celebrate International Open Access Week 2022 by joining us for a statewide panel discussion featuring Alabama librarians who are involved in open access initiatives on their campuses. The panelists will discuss what they’ve done to make their campuses more OA friendly and share what they’ve learned along the way. You’ll learn from their experiences, have the opportunity to ask questions, and connect with other Alabama librarians interested in open access.
