The JKUAT library is planning a series of activities geared towards creating sensitization and awareness of the open access movement and open access information resources during this week. Some of these activities are:
• Training workshops
o Plagiarism detector and referencing techniques
o Practical training on use of open resources
• Display of Leaflets, posters, brochures, banners on notice boards and graduation
• Exhibition desk to display OA promotional materials
• Participation in OA Blogs and discussion forums
• competitions on creative promotional activities
The JKUAT library will also be promoting the development of an OA repository for JKUAT to allow staff and students to share and disseminate research findings more effectively.
The entire JKUAT fraternity is invited to participate and come up with creative ways of participating. This may be through poems, cartoons, blogs, articles and other fun and creative activities with an OA
message. You can also sign up on www.openaccessweek.org to
chat and post your messages. Please remember to include JKUAT in your message.
