TO: Nicholas J. Rowland
I have reviewed the Advisory and Consultative report, Open Access Policy Recommendations, which was passed by the University Faculty Senate on April 23, 2019 and concur with the recommendations.
I appreciate the University Faculty Senate’s initiative and effort in this timely support for open access for Penn State research, and I hope that the Senate, through the relevant committees, can help disseminate the recommendations broadly across the University.
By copy of this memo, I am asking that Barbara Dewey, Dean of the University Libraries and Scholarly Communications, implement the recommendations.
