Conversations around open access (OA) have been increasing in number and importance both at BU and in academe at large in the last few years. A number of open access initiatives at BU aims to bring more resources to our researchers -- and to make our research output more available to others. You're invited to a presentation and discussion of open access initiatives at BU. We'll lay out some of the issues affecting the nature of our work, describe BU's participation in the OA movement, and highlight direct implications of OA for faculty and graduate researchers at all levels. We'll also describe some services available to you at the BU Libraries, and solicit your feedback.
