Open Access Week is an annual global event now in its eighth year, promoting Open Access as the new default in scholarship and research. It is an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.
Regis University Library proudly hosts multiple open access resources in ePublications at Regis University, our institutional repository. Browse our student authored publications that have enduring value as records of original research and are actively read and referred to by Regis University students and faculty, as well as outside researchers across the globe.
Browse articles in Jesuit Higher Education: A Journal (JHE), a scholarly, peer reviewed, open access, online journal focused on the development, advancement, and critique of higher education in the Jesuit tradition.

The photos on display in the Fireplace Lounge are only a few of the hundreds of photographs Juan Espinosa took between 1971 and 1974 when he was a journalism student at the University of Colorado in Boulder. Cesar Chavez, Corky Gonzales, and Reies Tijerina already were national figures in the Chicano Movement. He started “El Diario” student newspaper during the summer of 1972. Until he graduated in May 1974, he spent much of his time documenting the Chicano Movement.
An opening reception will be held on Tuesday, September 15, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the Fireplace Lounge, Dayton Memorial Library. An artist talk will be held on Wednesday, September 16, from 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. in the O’Sullivan Gallery.

Illustrations from Ode to Itipini are on display through October 28th. Regis instructor, Natasha McConnachie, illustrated the children’s story Ode to Itipini written by her mother, Jenny McConnachie.
Jenny McConnachie is a registered nurse and long serving Episcopal missionary in South Africa. Jenny wrote Ode to Itipini as a tribute to the community that she worked with for over twenty years. Itipini was a community built on a refuse site- outside Mthatha in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. Jenny’s story chronicles a day in the life of the community: struggles, delights and the care provided by volunteers. Natasha’s mixed media/collage illustrations convey the mprovisational nature of shanty homes and the colorful people who made their home there.
Join Natasha and Jenny for an informal exhibition closing on Tuesday, October 28th, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Illustrations are for sale at $300 each. Half of proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders to fight the Ebola crisis in West Africa. The book is available for $9 through Natasha at 303-960-8063 or online at magcloud.com.
