Open Access Week: October 22-28

A heads up to all our Free Law Friends that next week is the 6th annual Open Access Week (October 22 – 28).  Appropriately, it will be celebrated “everywhere”.  Check out the Open Access site to see a full list of 2012 events.  In our own backyard there will be workshops, seminars, and panel discussions at UC Berkeley, UC Davis and UC Santa Cruz.
