It's all about open

University Libraries is hoping to engage CMU researchers in practices that will enhance the discovery, use and impact of their work.

With that goal in mind CMU Libraries has launched the #OpenCMU campaign, emphasizing the benefits of open access, open data, open licenses and open peer review for researchers.

Throughout the fall semester, #OpenCMU will teach researchers how to increase access to their work as well as how to get credit for their work. Followers of the campaign on Twitter and Facebook will find information disseminated in bite-sized bits—quick to consume and easy to digest.

To schedule a presentation or Q&A for your department or class, contact Denise Troll Covey, Scholarly Communications Librarian, at or 412-268-8599.
