Guelph Voices of Open Access. A public event held during Open Access Week International on October 21st 2010 at 10 Carden street, Guelph Ontario. Guelph Voices of Open Access connected scholars and community members to the global Open Access movement that seeks free open sharing of research ­findings. Whether you imagine a researcher seeking to reach scholars in developing countries, a community practitioner needing up-to-date data, or a recent university graduate seeking scholarly information on a topic, it becomes easy to see how free online access to peer-reviewed scientific information and discoveries benefi­ts our communities and society as a whole.
