Join NCAR Library as it celebrates Open Access (OA) Month. This year’s theme “Set the Default to Open Access” focuses on “open” as the expected outcome. Ten years ago The Budapest Open Access Initiative was launched as a global campaign to “accelerate research, enrich education, share the learning of the rich with the poor and the poor with the rich, make the literature as useful as it can be, and lay the foundation for uniting humanity in a common intellectual conversation and quest for knowledge”. Much has transpired throughout the world as well as within our UCAR/NCAR/UCP community. OpenSky, our institutional repository, celebrates its third year extending free and open access to our scholarship for the benefit of research and education. Stay tuned during the month as the Library shares UCAR/NCAR successes and progress towards this initiative.
