Open Access Week is a global event to raise awareness of in the importance of open access to information and knowledge. It is held during the last full week of October each year; this year, the week runs from October 23rd to 28th.

Every year, AUC Libraries try to raise awareness of the importance of Open Access for research and teaching, through a variety of activities. In keeping with the theme of the Common Reading Program at AUC, this year’s activities will focus on open access to data. Throughout the week, there will be lunchtime talks by key stakeholders on campus to shed light on current data policies and practices at AUC. These talks are free and open to all, but aimed primarily at an audience consisting of faculty and graduate students at AUC.

In this second event of Open Access Week, the experts at AUC’s Access to Knowledge for Development Center (A2K4D) will talk about the potential and promise that data holds for development, with particular reference to Egypt.
