Every year during “Open Access Week” libraries throughout the world participate in a wide variety of activities to promote awareness of Open Access and the benefits of Open Access publishing. This poster, created by members of the Academic Libraries of Indiana Scholarly Communications Committee, will highlight some of the activities that have been hosted by a variety of libraries across the state. The goal is to help libraries develop ideas for their own Open Access activities. The goal of the Open Access movement is to make results of scholarly research freely and immediately available to all people worldwide. Free access to scholarly information speeds the rate of discovery and has the power to transform the way research is conducted. Open Access Week is now entering its 8th year, and there are a number of low cost materials, programming ideas, and events that libraries can tap into to help raise awareness of the benefits of making research openly available.
