The Open Access Week program will be geared towards realization of the library’s mission; to provide quality information services that will empower the University in carrying out its core mandate: teaching, learning, research and community impact. The program will also promote open access publishing to harness the sharing and dissemination of information and knowledge globally.
How did you hear of the OA Week site?
