A joint event with the Faculty of History, University of Oxford. All are welcome, but numbers will be limited and those wishing to attend are asked to register with firstname.lastname@example.org not later than Friday 29 September.
Based at the Universities of Cambridge and York, this project explores how the Reformation in Britain and Europe was remembered, forgotten, contested and reinvented. The exhibition is a collaborative enterprise incorporating some of the many treasures of the Cambridge University Library, York Minster Library and Lambeth Palace Library.
A display and demonstration of the exhibition website will be accompanied by short talks by the project team, Brian Cummings, Ceri Law, Bronwyn Wallace and Alexandra Walsham.

The concept of Open Access to research outputs has been common currency for many years. This reflects the rapid growth of the Internet making different publication models easily available. More recent thinking has expanded the concept of openness even further, to Open Science (OS), which aims to transform science by making research more open, global, collaborative, creative and closer to society. This approach is being embraced by all academic disciplines. The shift is extremely important for the development and exploitation of research, and hence for the professionals who support it.
