UNT Scholarly Works is the Libraries' Newest Digital Open Access Collection
The UNT Scholarly Works Collection provides global access to the UNT Community's research, creative and scholarly output. Articles, papers, artwork, music, research data, reports, presentations and more are all available to the public. This open access collection enables the UNT community to share their knowledge and expertise with a worldwide audience. It is continuously growing as more faculty members submit their works to be added to the collection.
UNT Faculty Senate Approves Open Access Policy
On March 9, 2011, the UNT Faculty Senate voted overwhelmingly to support the UNT Policy on Open Access to Scholarly Works. Work on the policy began in 2010 with the establishment of an Open Access Policy Committee. The Committee developed drafts of the policy document, revised with input from faculty members, Faculty Senators, external reviewers, and others.
