Open Access Advisory Board

The overarching goal of the Open Access Advisory Board is to shape open access policy and practice at KU to promote the dissemination of KU faculty research so that it reaches the greatest number of people who might discover and benefit from it.

The members serve as a valuable source of advice, helping the libraries develop strategies for connecting the KU faculty open access policy with professional guidance, supportive resources, integrated technology planning and internal and external communications, all designed to highlight the value of and access to KU research.
