The Medical Library at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin is displaying an Open Access poster collection at the Campus Virchow Klinikum branch. The exhibition informs visitors (mostly students!) about Open Access topics at all levels, from beginners learning about OA basics like Green and Gold routes, to experts interested in the statistics of OA in Berlin. Related topics like ORCID and Creative Commons (CC)licences are also covered, and while most posters are in German, some are in English.
The pool of potential posters is wide since the OA community have produced many posters and images with CC licences, enabling us to copy and display them!
Posters have been chosen for the collection according to their relevance and the clarity with which they address OA topics. This year's poster from UK PubMed Central is particularly relevant to our medical subject area, and of course the strategy for Berlin is locally relevant.
Posters are displayed at A0 size in frames around the corridors of the ground floor at the library, in order to attract maximum attention. The display was launched in OA Week 2017 and is being refreshed in OA Week 2018. Our exhibition will run beyond OA Week itself, so if you are in Berlin in the near future, then do come in and see it!
