Join us for Open Access Week 2022

International Open Access Week, October 24-30, 2022, is an opportunity to join together, take action, and raise awareness around how open can be a means for climate justice.

This year’s theme, "Open for Climate Justice," seeks to encourage connection and collaboration among the climate movement and the international open community. Sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries. Read more about the theme.

Test your OA knowledge through the U of T Libraries OA Week social media trivia quiz October 24-28. The quiz highlights the OA Week climate theme and various U of T Libraries activities. Complete at least 3 of the daily quizzes and you will be entered into a draw for one of two $50 U of T Bookstore gift cards!

OA Week is also the perfect time to deposit your scholarly outputs to TSpace. Please note that TSpace accepts a wide variety of scholarly, research, or pedagogical materials such as conference papers, presentations, book chapters, not just research articles. If you don’t have time to self-deposit, you can take advantage of our mediated deposit service. Simply:

  1. Complete the online Mediated Deposit Agreement, then
  2. Email us with accepted manuscript versions of your publications.

Explore the UTSC Library's short video to see some of our other contributions to the open movement. Our hope is that the contributions, and the tools and systems featured in our video, plant seeds that improve openness and equitable access to knowledge over time.

Contact your Liaison Librarian or the Digital Scholarship Unit for more information or help in creating and finding open collections and resources.
