9th Library Open Access & Academic Integrity Week (17 & 18 Nov, 2022)

The Library has organized its 9th Open Access & Academic Integrity week. This gives the Library an opportunity to interact with stakeholders for service feedback and to market its services. This is a university-wide occasion that aims to increase awareness on digital library and the importance of academic integrity to students, staff and other stakeholders. The event encourages the university fraternity to take the opportunity to join together, take action, and raise awareness around how open access and sharing of research information enables climate justice.
