6. SPARC Resources for Students
This month on the Right to Research Coalition's blog, two students from the University of British Columbia explain how they got nearly their entire student body of 40,000 to support an open-access mandate at their institution. Their story is a great primer for how students can be effective advocates and allies for promoting an open-access policy on campus. The post can be found at http://www.righttoresearch.org/blog/UBC.shtml.
