This week, October 22 to 28, the McGill Library is celebrating Open Access Week. On view now in the Redpath Library building is a bilingual exhibition created by Microfiches. The twelve exhibition posters explain key open access concepts. The texts were written by renowned scholarly communications specialists and visually interpreted by an artist.
This evening, October 24, join us at the Schulich Library for a Vernissage for the exhibition and meet members of the creative team behind this project. (Event details)
