Open Access Week 2023

October 23-29, 2023 marks International Open Access Week, a week dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of the concept of “open access,” which SPARC defines as “the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need.” To help celebrate the week and educate our campus community about Open Access and the ways Clemson Libraries supports it, we will post a new story to our website every day this week related to Open Access topics. Check back here through the week to read those stories and learn more.
