UCL's Academic Board, the senior academic senate in the University, agreed to implement UCL's Open Access mandate at its meeting on 25 May 2009. 'This is a tremendously important development for European research-led Universities', said Paul Ayris, the Director of UCL Library Services, who co-ordinated work on the mandate. 'It means that UCL's research can now be visible to as wide an audience as possible'.
