Academic and research communities are invited to learn how open access maximizes and promotes their work, provides stronger ownership for researchers and authors, and ultimately, has far reaching benefits for academia and society as a whole.

Now in its eighth year, "Open Access Week" facilitates the growing movement toward preserving and growing the ability to find, share and use information.

The program schedule includes Lisa Macklin, Director of Scholarly Communications Office, Emory University, who will discuss "How Open Access is Changing Scholarship" and "Copyright: What Every Author Should Know."
Llewellyn Joseph Gibbons, Professor of Law, University of Toledo, will present "Creative Commons Licensing" and Caroline Whitacre, VP for Research at The Ohio State University, will speak about the "SHARE (SHared Access Research Ecosystem) Initiative" on which she is a steering group committee member. SHARE is a steering group that pulls together stakeholders from the research community to guide policy and build the infrastructure for storing, preserving, and sharing research and data.
Continental breakfast will be served at 9:00 am. in the C|M| College of Law Atrium.

The Symposium is free but please register to attend (online or at the event). Visit for program information.
