We Support Open Access!

oaweek poster
October 20th-26th is the 8th International Open Access Week! This initiative is designed to bring awareness to issues of research sharing, academic publishing, and accessibility to information. Works that are published as Open Access are immediately available online, at no cost, with limited or no copyright restrictions. As researchers, open accessibility to information means you can get more up-to-date information, when you need it, for free!

We’re joining the effort here at McQuade Library with our own Open Access institutional repository, Merrimack ScholarWorks.  Through Merrimack ScholarWorks, we provide researchers, scholars, and students from around the world with free access to the scholarly and artistic works created by members of the Merrimack community.  Show your support for Open Access by uploading your work today!

For more information about Merrimack ScholarWorks, or Open Access publishing, please contact Michaela Keating: keatingm@merrimack.edu
