Mount Saint Vincent University Open Access Policy Approved

Last night Senate unanimously approved our Open Access Policy, put forward by the Senate Library Committee.

Thanks to Dr. James Sawler for presenting the policy on behalf of the committee, to Dr. Mary Jane Harkins for her leadership as committee chair, and to the librarians and archivist at the Mount for their excellent work on this policy and on our institutional repository.

Our policy is based largely on Athabasca U's policy. In addition to Athabasca U, we owe a debt of gratitude to Open Access proponents Heather Morrison at SFU and Andrew Waller at UCalgary, plus the librarians at the U of A who let us re-use their Open Access LibGuide.

You can see our Digital Commons (IR) at http://dc.msvu.ca and the OA policy is at: http://dc.msvu.ca:8080/xmlui/handle/10587/944 ;
