Members of the UF campus community are invited to submit proposals for posters that demonstrate how open access has impacted their teaching, learning and research.
Examples of possible poster topics:

Smathers Libraries. Please include, in your proposal, at which event you would like to present. Proposals will be reviewed by the Libraries' Scholarly Communications Working Group. Notifications of accepted proposals will be made by September 28, 2012.
Accepted posters will be printed and set up by the Libraries, but must be removed at the end of the Open Access Week event by the presenter. Completed posters should be no more than three feet by four feet. Posters should be submitted in PDF or PPT (PowerPoint) format by October 15, 2012 to [log in to unmask]
