The Puzzling Hunt for Open Access

The Puzzling Hunt for Open Access is a virtual “Escape Room” themed around Open Access developed by Hannah Crago and Katrine Sundsbø from the University of Essex library.

Thank you for following our open access week blog. Keep an eye out for more news on open access here on Library News and on our open access support webpages.
