A brief description of how the institution’s library(ies) support open access to research:

We have an institutional respository in which librarians post faculty publications (books and papers). The library manages and supports the UR Scholarship Repository. The Library seeks all permission for the uploading of faculty publications, enters metadata, and uploads materials. Along with the repository, open access education and policy information is provided to faculty by the library. Librarians also work with faculty on author rights, copyright, and changes in scholarly publishing.

Since beginning in 2013, the repository contains more than 6,300 papers, which have been downloaded more than 315,000 times.

The library also provides a webpage which acts as a clearinghouse for open access information.
