The UHM Library and the Office of Faculty Development and Academic Support present Open Access Week at UHM from October 19-23, 2015.
Learn about and share your experiences with open access — the free,
immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and reuse those results as you need. Join us for presentations on Creative Commons licensing, open government resources, author rights and more.
Sara Lee, manager of UH Manoa’s ScholarSpace, has created an exciting schedule of events that highlights the range of scholarly endeavors that flourish in an Open Access environment.
