A brief description of how the institution’s library(ies) support open access to research:

The UNCG Library has adopted a robust policy on open access for all
research. See
http://library.uncg.edu/services/scholarly_communication/open_access_policy.aspx


The website URL where information about open access to the institution's research is available:

The library is not a separate research-producing division but is integrated throughout the campus. Nevertheless, their policy is not binding for all the other units on campus. The UNCG Faculty Senate may take up this issue in the near future but it has not been a priority due to other more pressing matters.
