Open Access Week 2013


It’s that time of year again in the Library, for next week is Open Access Week!  Open Access, as many of you may know, is the push scholarly work to be open and available to everyone, free of charge.  Columbus State University Libraries has taken the initiative to incorporate more elements of open access in our electronic resources for student and faculty research.  The focal point of open access at CSU is the CSU ePress, which is the CSU’s non-commercial, open access institutional repository that is a part of the GALILEO Knowledge Repository (GKR).   The CSU ePress contains several faculty publications, and an extensive bibliography of CSU faculty research, in addition to electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs), creative works, and academic research pieces generated by CSU students.
For both students and faculty, access to quality research is essential to being successful in their academic and career endeavors.  Thus, ask a librarian today about how you can learn more about Open Access!
