UNT's Annual Open Access Symposia


Wednesday, June 6, 2018 to Thursday, June 7, 2018


Faculty and staff participated in two workshops Feb. 9 led by Open Textbook Network personnel. Open textbooks are published be freely used, adapted and distributed in electronic format, often with print versions that are more affordable than conventionally published textbooks.

UNT’s Student Innovative Fund for Teaching (SIFT) has provided funding for the Libraries to join the Open Textbook Network, a consortium of institutions committed to access, affordability and student success through open textbooks.

Slides and videos of presentations at UNT's Open Access Symposium 2017 are now available. Click on the title of a session in the program to find the links.

#DataRescueDenton will be held on Saturday, May 20, in Denton, just after the Open Access Symposium 2017 in Frisco. #DataRescueDenton is an opportunity for programmers, scientists, archivists, activists, and volunteers of all kinds to identify, back-up, and help preserve publicly accessible federal data resources in the public interest, in the event they are removed from public view and use. We will hear from experts on the challenges of preserving born-digital at-risk data and related issues followed by breakout sessions for the hack-a-thon.
