Did you know it’s Open Access Week? What is that?
“Open Access” to information – the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.

What are Open Educational Resources (OER)?
How can you get involved?

- Publish materials as OER – share your great educational materials (and get publication credit!)
- Tell a friend! The more folks who are involved in the OER community, the better!
