W&M Libraries is incredibly pleased to share that we have set aside funds ($100K in funds to be precise) to support faculty, students, and staff who want to publish their work open access!

    Each year on the third Monday of January, the nation observes the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. As a leader in the civil rights movement, King stood as a pillar of hope and a model of grace. His influence was pivotal in ending segregation and the national holiday provides an opportunity to reflect on the work that still needs to be done for racial equality.

    Our faculty at William & Mary are making great contributions to academia with their research. In our recent blog series, we interview faculty with recent publications for insight into their scholarship. Candice Benjes-Small, head of research and librarian to Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies, spoke to Dr. Jennifer Putzi about her recently published book, Fair Copy: Relational Poetics and Antebellum American Women's Poetry.
