Open Access Day Takeaways

If you missed Open Access Day 2008 on October 14, don’t worry.  Here are some tangible takeaways:

  1. The webcasts of Sir Richard Roberts and Dr. Phil Bourne are on the web now.  Listen to them talk about what Open Access means to them and why it’s important.
  2. The “calls to action” or take-home messages are: USE open-access researach, SHARE your work, TAKE action, SHOW your support, GET connected
  3. Students: Check out the “Open Students: Students for Open Access to Research” site
  4. There are still lots of handouts, buttons and stickers left (PLoS, SciVee, eScholarship, Creative Commons, etc.).  Learn more about Open Access by requesting a free packet from Nancy Stimson at
