In support of Open Access Week the Library and Information Service at Stellenbosch University (SU) hosted a virtual seminar on Open Access to Information on the 20th October 2010. Various aspects of open access were discussed including publishing in an open access journal, the use of open access software, and open access from a researcher’s perspective. To demonstrate its commitment to sharing knowledge and research with the world, Stellenbosch University became the first African University to sign the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in Sciences and Humanities. The signing took place during the event.
The presentations are available online from the Stellenbosch institutional research repository, SUNScholar: http://scholar.sun.ac.za/handle/10019.1/4806
