Hi Donna, when you will be checking a list of published PLoS authors from South Africa, can you also please take a look at Botswana, especially University of Botswana? We will have an open access workshop there at the beginning of September and it would be good to invite them as speakers. Thanks a lot!

Oooh... more swag would be great!

Last year really helped to raise awareness among librarians at UF. We are hiring for a Scholarly Communications position now and our dean is very interested in open access issues.

We haven't decided on our actual events yet. I think that we will start planning sometime this summer. We will definitely let you know when we have started planning our OA week events.

Thanks again!
