Open Access Week 2013
Oct. 21 through 27 is Open Access Week. Open Access is a new model of scholarly publication based on sharing. One type of Open Access resource is Open Educational Resources (OER). OERs include open textbooks, quizzes, videos, and other materials. Open textbooks mean little or no cost for students, adaptability and customizability, and access through print, browser, tablet and smart phone.
