First international Open Access Week, October 19-23, 02009

The first international Open Access Week celebration was launched on October 19 and ends on October 23, 02009. According to the Web site's About page,

Open Access Week builds on the momentum started by the student-led national day of action in 2007 and carried by the 120 campuses in 27 countries that celebrated Open Access Day in 2008. 2008 organizers SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing & Academic Resources Coalition), the PLoS (The Public Library of Science), and Students for FreeCulture welcome new key contributors for 2009: OASIS (the Open Access Scholarly Information Sourcebook); Open Access Directory (OAD); and (Electronic Information for Libraries), which will again spearhead events in developing and transitional countries.
