In October, 2011, KU Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little signed the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities, reaffirming the KU commitment to making scholarly research more widely available. The University of Kansas was among the first institutions in the U.S. to sign the Declaration.
"On behalf of the University of Kansas, I am pleased to sign the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities," Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said. "As the first public institution in the United States to implement an open access policy, the University of Kansas, its leaders, administrators and faculty widely understand and appreciate the importance of this endeavor. I am honored to lend my support."
