Each year McGill University Library celebrates Open Access Week and uses the week to discuss the benefit of making scholarly research broadly accessible on the internet.

The cornerstone of the open access initiative is to make the results of scholarly research freely and immediately accessible online. One way to achieve this is by placing versions of your already published work in an institutional repository.
