PD Sessions @ Zoom

Please note that this PD Session commences at the special time of 1PM NZDT. See the list below for your local time.

For the last five years the Council of New Zealand University Librarians (CONZUL) has been checking the state of open access to publications by our university researchers. We know that roughly half our publications are available for access but how does that break down? Where are they? How much did it cost? How much more could we be putting in our repositories? What are the implications of the new MBIE open research policy? Hear two of the team behind this work describe what we know – and come along with your questions for them.
