Open Access Resolution Passed at Washington University

The Washington University in St. Louis Faculty Senate recently passed an Open Access Resolution  that encourages faculty members to make their scholarly works freely available online by posting their works in institutional repositories. Digital Commons@Becker serves as the repository for hosting and preserving the scholarly work created at Washington University School of Medicine. Administered and maintained by the Bernard Becker Medical Library, Digital Commons@Becker provides groups, departments, centers, divisions, or programs at the School of Medicine with a platform for creating customized collections that reflect the wide range of their scholarly output. Interested parties should contact Bob Engeszer or Cathy Sarli.
