Open Access Week

October 24 - 30, 2022 | Everywhere


JKUAT launched its open access week on Monday the 18th with an exhibition at our graduation pavilion. The students’ interest in the exhibition and their participation has been very
impressive. The library had previously sensitized a group of students who have
been working with the library to reach to other students with the open access
message. They have been so creative. Some of the students have designed orange bandanas
to wear during the week. Those who are working with the library made name
badges written open access ambassadors. They have set up a desk and are helping
other students sign up in the open access week. The open access week will
climax on Friday with a beauty pageant to select open access ambassadors. So
far 20 students have registered for the pageant. Part of the entertainment the
students have organized includes salsa dancers who will perform on Friday. The students have also designed promotional posters, invitation cards and a banner that has been placed at our main gate. internet
