Gleeson Library Celebrates Open Access Week 2016

Open Access is online access to scholarly research free of charge and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. In other words Open Access is scholarly research without borders

With Open Access more people can interact with the scholarship of others, more people can build upon that scholarship, more people can benefit from the research we do. We celebrate Open Access!
