I invite all of you to respond positively to the Call for Papers and submit your proposals for paper presentations, workshops and poster sessions as we explore the many facets of Open Access and its impact on Libraries, Archives and Museums. Your contribution will add value in advancing the knowledge of Open Access in the ACURIL community.
