Re: Open UToronto
Emerging from its recent celebration of Open Access Week, the University of Toronto is pleased to announce the launch of the new Open UToronto website http://open.utoronto.ca.
The Open UToronto website is a gateway to open resources and projects developed by members of the University of Toronto community.
This initiative is meant to promote the discovery, use, creation and sharing of open, or freely available, content, resources and courses.
Part of the goal in developing this digital hub is to encourage members of the University community to incorporate open resources in their teaching, learning and research and to put their own work into the public domain for the benefit of others.
Please share this memo widely with your communities. For those working on Open projects within the University, we would be very pleased to include information about your project, including open collections, resources, journals, courses and software. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
