Open Access Week 2013
Welcome to Open Access Week at Georgia Tech
Open Access week is celebrated worldwide October 21-25, 2013. In addition to the announcement that many federal agencies will be introducing new Open Access requirements, Georgia Tech's recently passed Open Access Policy has raised questions about the issue of openness for many faculty and researchers.
This week, the Library and other units around campus are sponsoring several events to celebrate, discuss, and promote the principles of Open Access.
