University of Delaware’s Faculty Senate Approves Open Access Resolution

From the U. of Delaware:

The University of Delaware Library has announced that at the April 6 meeting of the Faculty Senate, members unanimously passed an open access resolution granting permission to make their scholarly journal articles openly accessible in the library’s institutional repository (UDSpace).


The new open access policy implementing the resolution will support the faculty in a variety of ways. In addition to making their work more widely available, open access will facilitate greater impact of their work, simplify the retention of distribution rights and preserve the deposited works.


Catherine Wojewodzki, librarian and scholarly communication officer, stated, “Over the next few months, the library will create procedures and forms to make deposit as seamless as possible for faculty.”
