October 21 – 27, 2019 marks Open Access Week, a global event where advocates engage communities to teach them about the benefits of Open Access. What is Open Access? According to SPARC, Open Access is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles coupled with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment.
Here at Jefferson, we celebrated Open Access throughout October, with events, documentary screenings, games and more. We hope you enjoyed it! Make sure to follow us on Twitter (@GutmanLibrary, @SMLibrary_TJU) and tell us why you support Open Access using the hashtag #openaccess2019.
