Texas A&M University Libraries has released a schedule of activities for Open Access Week, which will take place October 18-24. Following is an excerpt from the announcement:
An information booth, the OA Café, will be set up at several campus library locations. Visitors can get information about open access and copyright, as well as pick up “Aggies for Open Access” buttons and register for Aggie-themed prizes. Guest experts will be available to answer questions at the OA Café.
In-class presentations will address special topics such as, “Is there Copyright in Second Life,” and the Thesis Office will co-sponsor a Creative Commons Clinic Oct. 18 in the Sterling C. Evans Library.
Texas A&M is a founding member of the Texas Digital Library. Its digital repository contains the scholarly output of the University including published articles, conference papers, dissertations and theses, faculty-authored textbooks, AgriLife publications and historical images from Cushing Memorial Library and Archives.
