Kudos MIT Libraries!

From the Blog Post:

MIT has reached a new open access milestone: 44 percent of faculty members’ articles published since the OA policy passed in 2009 are now being shared in the Open Access Articles Collection of DSpace@MIT. (Last year, the number was 43 percent.)


As of the end of June, there were about 20,200 articles in MIT’s OA collection — a more than 19 percent increase over last year at that time.

The post goes on to provide links for faculty to learn more about how to deposit material into the repository.
