Happy Open Access Week!
Open access is an international an endeavor that supports the individual work of faculty and students, strengthens the academy as a whole, and touches everyone everywhere with the benefits of freely shared knowledge and creativity. The exciting/challenging thing is that while open access supports you, it also depends on your awareness and commitment to open your own work to the world.
To insure CMU faculty and students can easily make their research and creative output accessible forever, Carnegie Mellon University established (and the Libraries manages) an institutional repository, Research Showcase. Learn more:
