Name Change: Open Access Button is Now OA.Works; New Name Reflects the “Momentum and Direction” of Organization; New Tools in the Works

From the OA.Works Blog:

Eight years ago we got our start building the Open Access Button. Since then, we’ve built ShareYourPaper, InstantILL, and our organization. We have wonderful partnerships with librarians, and new tools in the pipeline. It’s time for our name to reflect the momentum and direction of our work.

Enter, OA.Works.

At OA.Works, we build powerfully simple open access tools for a just and kind information age. That’s our mission and vision. We’re a non-profit building tools so open access is easy and equitable. The tools are free, open source, and co-designed with advocates for a just world. Everything you need to know about us is on our new website: OA.Works (yes, that’s the URL!).
