Celebrate the annual Open Access Week with us, October 21-27, 2013. We are hosting a series of events that highlight projects, research, and policies at U-M that allow the public to access and reuse the results of scholarly research online. The library is committed to supporting Open Access research and scholarly practices by providing publishing support, research support, and education on how U-M faculty, students, and staff can participate in this global movement.
