  • Budapest Open Access Initiative. http://www.soros.org/openaccess/read.shtm
  • The premise is that by working together, faculty from our institutions in specific topical areas can provide higher-quality learning experiences in more cost-effective ways. Moreover, this academic collaboration can be accomplished without diminishing academic freedom or losing the individualistic creative ingenuity that is the hallmark of outstanding colleges and universities.” “ The product of this work would be a toolkit of teaching processes/materials for voluntary use in specific topical areas that can be used by faculty across Oklahoma colleges and universities.”
