Open Access Week
Tuesday, 23 October 2018
This October the University of Reading Library is hosting a number of events to celebrate International Open Access Week.
Now in its tenth year, International Open Access Week is an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about the potential benefits of open access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make open access a new norm in scholarship and research.
Please come along and take part in our Open Access week activities on campus next week. There is no need to book.
