Open Access Week 2021!

This week marks the annual celebration of Open Access Week, organized by SPARC, the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition.

Open Access is a key element in Open Educational Resources (OER).

Take a look at our Le Moyne OER (Open Educational Resources) Guide for more information on how you might locate and use OER, and how Librarians can help!

What is Open Access? Open Access is defined on the Open Access Week page as:

The free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research, and the right to use and re-use those results as you need – has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole.

Master Printmaking by the Asociacion de Gradadores de Cuba

These works of art were created between 1949 to 1968 (pre, during, and post Cuban Revolution) as a means to share cultural, political, social, spiritual, and artistic perspectives both domestically & internationally. This exhibition examines various printmaking techniques by Founding Members and other AGC members.

Some works exhibited are also permanently exhibited at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de Cuba (National Museum of Fine Arts of Cuba). Lastly, some works were produced at the Taller Experimental de Grafica located in La Habana (Havana), the oldest print workshop in Cuba founded in 1962, which still operates today.

The exhibition is loaned from the Armand-Paul Family Collection.
