UNT Open Access Symposium 2023 #UNTOA23


The 2023 Open Access Symposium, "Navigating the New Open," will be a collaborative event between the University of North Texas Libraries and the Texas State University Libraries.

It will take place via Zoom on April 14, 2023, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Please save the date!

This year's Symposium will focus on recent federal initiatives supporting Open Science and public access to federally-funded research, including those outlined in the 2022 Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) memo, Ensuring Free, Immediate, and Equitable Access to Federally Funded Research.  We will also discuss recent legislation in the state of Texas promoting Open Educational Resources (OER) and course markings for public universities. 

The afternoon session will include a panel of faculty who have created or used OER or open textbooks in their courses and an open pedagogy workshop organized by the TXST Libraries.
