MIT Open Access Policy
Big news at MIT. By unanimous faculty vote, MIT adopted the first University-wide OA mandate in the United States for faculty authors. The driving force for this initiative on the faculty was Hal Abelson, with whom I have the honor to serve on the CC Board. I've also had the pleasure of working with the Director Libraries and the MIT Press, Ann Wolpert on various projects, who also played a central role and who, I am sure, will enthusiastically implement the new policy. Congratulations MIT!
