Open Access Week 2021: October 25-31

October 20, 2021

The theme of this year’s International Open Access Week, which runs from today until October 31st, is “It Matters How We Open Knowledge: Building Structural Equity”. According to openaccessweek.org:

Diversity, equity, and inclusion must be consistently prioritized year-round and integrated into the fabric of the open community, from how our infrastructure is built to how we organize community discussions to the governance structures we use. International Open Access Week is an important opportunity to catalyze new conversations, create connections across and between communities that can facilitate this co-design, and advance progress to build more equitable foundations for opening knowledge—discussions and actions that need to be continued, year in and year out.

Here at the Oberlin Colleges Libraries, we too believe that access, equity, and inclusion are essential discussions that need to occur not just during Open Access Week, but year-round. Our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) Committee mission statement is as follows:

The IDEA Committee develops measurable actions by which inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility are embedded in the operations of the Oberlin College Libraries.
