The Harvard Library Office for Scholarly Communication was formed in 2008 with a charge to the Library from the Harvard Provost to spearhead campus-wide initiatives to open, share, and preserve scholarship. The OSC benefits from the oversight of a University-wide faculty advisory committee that provides advice on specific programs and policies.
With support from OSC, open-access policies are now in place all of the Harvard schools. These policies were adopted by faculty and grant an automatic license to Harvard for future scholarly articles written by Harvard faculty members.
Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) is the University wide, open-access, repository used to house articles that fall under the faculty open access policies. Visitors to DASH can locate, read, and use up-to-the-minute scholarship from Harvard. DASH is crawled by very wide range of academic and mainstream search engines, making its contents discoverable without the need to visit DASH..
