We encourage you to point faculty to OA Policy resources by using these transferable “ads” for:
- UC library sites
- Departmental sites
- Email to faculty
- Social media posts
- Meetings and presentations
The ads are included below, with the HTML code that can be used to easily embed them in other locations. We can also provide larger images suitable for digital signage (see high resolution image below).
We would love to hear suggestions about other ways to spread the word about the policy. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions and feedback.
Please also visit the UC OA Policy wiki collaboration point, available for UC campus library staff to easily share work, gather ideas, and begin collaborating on ways to effectively get the word out about the UC Open Access Policy.

You are welcome to customize and build upon either of these slide decks for use at your campus. Common modifications might include adding local branding, skipping the slides on manual deposit for campuses with access to the publication management system, adding a custom screenshot of the login page, or including a link to a local library website supporting the publication management system. Please do not add screenshots of the publication management system beyond the login screen without permission; if you need additional screenshots for a presentation or other outreach materials, please contact us at email@example.com.
