Open Access (OA) is a growing international movement that encourages the unrestricted sharing of academic research to benefit all communities. OA is the principle that all research should be freely accessible online, immediately after publication, and it's gaining global momentum with the support of funding agencies and policy makers. OA serves communities, supports innovation and development, makes publicly funded research available to taxpayers, and provides essential information to low income populations. Librarians have played an important role in the OA movement. Learn how Memorial University of Newfoundland is connecting communities with knowledge by disseminating research through several OA initiatives, and learn how to make your own research more accessible. Lisa Goddard, Memorial University's Scholarly Communications Librarian, will provide information about its research repository, ejournal hosting platform, and OA author's fund. Humanities Research Librarian, Kathryn Rose, will share her experience of collaborating with students and faculty to start an OA ejournal, and provide tips for attendees interested in creating an OA journal of their own. Copyright Liaison Librarian, Crystal Rose, will discuss the benefits of OA for communities, what university and government policy makers worldwide are doing to support OA mandates (and how Canada is lagging behind), how publishers have responded to the OA movement, and what you can do to advocate for OA within your institution or organization.
