Open Access literature is digital, online, free of charge and free from most copyright and licensing restrictions. (Suber, P. (2012). Open Access Overview. Retrieved from http://legacy.earlham.edu/~peters/fos/overview.htm). This is something to celebrate!
UBC is offering free sessions on open access publishing and open education and SFU is offering free sessions on student publishing and open textbooks
