Abstract: Open Access Information is a website containing digital learning resources within different aspects of Open Access. The resources consist of text documents, power point presentations and flyers which are free for all to access and download.

The purpose is to contribute to growing competence and awareness of Open Access publishing and self-archiving among researchers. More time and effort can be devoted to teaching and marketing by sharing learning resources among university staff. Working in this way we aim to increase the number of records in Swedish OA repositories.

Seven Swedish universities have jointly produced these resources with backing from the National Library of Sweden. All resources are published under a Creative Commons licence, which means that users are able to download, reuse and also upload changed and updated material.

The Open Access Information will continue to enhance its website and introduce Open Access to researchers by giving six seminars on the subject at Swedish universities during the period autumn 2008 and spring 2009.
