Every year, AUC Libraries try to raise awareness of the importance of Open Access for research and teaching, through a variety of activities. In keeping with the theme of the Common Reading Program at AUC, this year’s activities will focus on open access to data.
Throughout the week, there will be lunchtime talk by key stakeholders on campus to shed light on current data policies and practices at AUC. These talks are free and open to all, but aimed primarily at an audience consisting of faculty and graduate students at AUC.
In the fourth and final talk of Open Access Week, Hoda Rashad, the Director of the Social Research Center, will provide an overview of the Center’s experiences in curating research data and speak about evolving policies on public data access in the Egyptian context.
