How is the institutional repository related to Open Access?

UNT is currently considering a policy regarding access; as of March 9, 2011, the UNT Faculty Senate has voted to adopt an Open Access Policy (available as a PDF here) which relates specifically to journal articles. If the university chooses to enact the policy, the UNT Scholarly Works collection will house items covered by the open access policy as well as other items created by the UNT community which are not governed by the document. Items in the UNT Scholarly Works collection may be "Open Access" (available for public use), or restricted to use by the UNT community; some access settings will be determined by the publisher. For more information on UNT open access policies, see the homepage for Open Access @ UNT.
