  • A student and researcher reception arranged in order so that they could ask questions about open access. Participants could also join an open access quiz and try out a citizen science project.
  • Library staff on-site answered questions, helped researchers to register open access publications and find scholarly open access articles and journals. Further, they informed researchers about library support in regard to open accesss-related issues and visualised the cost of purchasing textbooks for first-year students as a prompt for discussions about the role of the library.
