UNT's Annual Open Access Symposia


Open Access 2017: Making Use of Public Data

Thursday, May 18, 2017 to Friday, May 19, 2017


Plans are coming together for Making Use of Public Data, this year's UNT Open Access Symposium, to be held May 18–19, 2017, at the UNT New College at Frisco.

The UNT Libraries Scholarly Communication Office is hosting an Open Textbook workshop during which faculty can discover open textbooks in their field and learn more about the Open Textbook Network.

UNT Faculty are invited to come sip delicious craft brews as you learn how Open Educational Resources can create a classroom and lower costs for students.

The UNT Libraries, with generous support from UNT’s Student Innovative Fund for Teaching, have joined the Open Textbook Network (OTN), a network of institutions committed to access, affordability, and student success through open textbooks, as part of a pilot program in support of open educational resources (OER). Use of open textbooks (academic textbooks that are free, openly licensed, and complete) creates a measurable, positive impact on student success.
