University Libraries Invited to Join Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions

The University Libraries have accepted an invitation to join COAPI ((the Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions) in recognition of our leadership role in the field and in recognition of the passage of the open access policy recently adopted by the University Libraries faculty.

The Coalition of Open Access Policy Institutions (COAPI) brings together representatives from North American universities with established faculty open access policies and those in the process of developing such policies. It was formed to share information and experiences and to illuminate opportunities for moving faculty-led open access forward at member institutions and advocating for open access nationally and internationally.  COAPI will offer a collection of best and evolving practices to act as a road map for inspiring, promoting and implementing open access polices at institutions without existing or effective open access policies.
