You have a little work to do in order to become an open scholar. If you’d like your work to be more open (because open works are used and cited more than closed works), consider speaking with a librarian about how to make your publications openly available in The Cupola. Also, you should know how much your assigned materials cost students and be attentive to whether or not your students have them (if not, perhaps the cost is inaccessible). Librarians are available to consult about options to reduce textbook costs for students, including assigning library-licensed resources and adopting, adapting, or creating Open Educational Resources. Open Access Week is the perfect time to learn more about opening your own research and teaching!
