Open practices in scholarship can lead to transformative knowledge and capacity building. Positive social impacts of Open Educational Resources (OER) are made clear through such advocacy initiatives as #textbookbroke. Open Access to outputs of scholarly work is in fact the foundational element of these and other features in the landscape of open sharing.  Your interest may be to comply with Tri-Agency Open Access or other funder or institutional sharing expectations. It may be to attract new funders, collaborators, or students. It may be to influence policy or to contribute openly to the development of knowledge in your discipline. The Library and Research Office have expertise and services to assist in interpreting your responsibilities and opportunities for making Open Access versions of your work available, and we offer low-barrier solutions for getting it done.
