Open Access to Legal Scholarship and Free Access to Law
The Osgoode Hall Law School Library is committed to the principles of open access in scholarly publishing at our universities and of free access to legal information in our society. We subscribe to and promote the principles enumerated in the Calgary Statement on Free Access to Legal Information in the belief that general application of these principles will benefit legal education, improve the dissemination of legal scholarship, promote free access to legal information and enhance access to justice.
The Osgoode Library has built and maintains the Osgoode Digital Commons, the institutional repository of Osgoode Hall Law School of York University. The Digital Commons captures, preserves and makes available to the global public the intellectual output of the Law School, including faculty research, scholarship and publications; journals and research centres; selected records and archives; and digital initiatives from the Osgoode Hall Law School Library.
The Osgoode Library and the Osgoode Digital Commons are participating members of the following open-access legal repositories:
