Athabasca University participated in the first international Open Access Week – October 19-23, 2009 – to broaden awareness and understanding of open access.
The objective of AU’s Open Access Week is to promote understanding, adoption, use and production of open access resources for formal and informal teaching and learning.
Athabasca University presented a series of five noon-hour webcasts exploring major issues and opportunities presented by open access. Each session featured an internationally known promoter and developer of open access resources, research or ideas.
The presentations were among many events taking place internationally to highlight Open Access Week.
