Happy Open Access Week!

The theme for Open Access Week 2017 is “Open in order to…” and there are some fantastic posters and other downloadable materials to help promote the event on the Open Access Week website.

The site also lists a number of events happening in Canada, including a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at MacEwan University, sessions on open education resources, open access journals,  repositories, and open data at the University of Lethbridge, a talk about open scholarship at Simon Fraser University, and discussions of open pedagogy at Douglas College, along with an online presentation on open access publishing organized by Athabasca University Press.

COPPUL member institutions are welcome to submit recordings of any open access-related talks to our Webinar Archive by emailing the SCWG Chair, Robyn Hall.
