October FLIP Meeting


In honor of International Open Access Week, Metadata Services Librarian Erik Carlson gave a very informative overview of Open Access (OA) in general and also spoke about his work with ScholarWorks, UA’s institutional repository. Erik spoke about the different kinds of OA access (gratis vs. libre, green vs. gold), copyright and licensing issues, and subject and institutional repositories and also provided links to further resources about Open Access. Thanks Erik!
