Open Access Week graphic

Join the UCSF Library as we participate in Open Access Week from October 21-29, 2013. Open Access Week offers an opportunity for the academic and research community to continue to learn about open access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make open access a new norm in scholarship and research. Hear about how open access empowered a 16-year-old to make a cancer screening breakthrough from NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins.
