Below, forwarded by Gavin Baker at SPARC, is the announcement of a very
welcome and useful student statement in support of institutional OA

    ---------- Forwarded message ----------
    From: Gavin Baker gavin --

    Prof. Harnad,

    I wanted to call your attention to the just-released Student Statement
    on The Right to Research, endorsed by several national student
    organizations and supported by SPARC, which calls for universities
    to adopt open access policies:

    This adds students' voices to those of faculty and librarians in
    support of institutional OA mandates.

    I appreciate any help you can give in spreading the word.

I would also draw students' attention to the article "The University's
Mandate to Mandate Open Access," which I wrote at Gavin's invitation in
Open Students:
