(Forwarding from Caroline Boyd, University of Salford, dated Friday 16
October 2009):

The University has announced its intention to implement plans that will make
free, easily accessible research knowledge available to a world wide
audience via the University of Salford Institutional Repository (USIR)

In a recent keynote speech, Vice-Chancellor Professor Martin Hall said:
"Openly disseminated knowledge is good knowledge."

For the last two years the University has been implementing systems to
enable the University's research active staff to deposit their findings and
research into the repository.

The University of Salford is pleased to now declare that from the 1st
January 2010, it will be implementing a mandatory policy for all research
active staff to deposit research information into the repository. This means
that as of January 2010, the University of Salford will officially be an
Open Access University.

Many thanks,
