October 24 – 28, 2016 is Open Access Week and the Pollak Library is participating in this global event that focuses on Open Access as it relates to information and research.

It also recognizes faculty who were recipients of this year's Pollak Library Open Access Publication Fund. The exhibit includes information to learn more about the benefits of Open Access, publishing and funding opportunities, and ways to integrate Open Access into research and scholarship. An "Open Access Computer Station" continues to be made available to read the featured articles or to browse this Open Access LibGuide.
