‘Developing your access agreement 2016-17’ conference
OFFA has published guidance to institutions on how to produce 2016-17 access agreements. To supplement this guidance, we held a one-day conference on Tuesday 24 February 2015, for practitioners to discuss our expectations with us and share good practice and experiences with other institutions. The conference was held in partnership with Action on Access and Universities UK.
