- Two resolutions in support of open access adopted by the Faculty Council, March 4, 2005.
- Summary: The first resolution simply resolves that "to the extent permitted by law, UNC-CH faculty are the owners of their research and should retain ownership, or use other means to foster open access publication wherever possible." The second creates two task forces, one to follow-up a campus-wide convocation on OA and one to establish an institutional repository. The second resolution also asks departments "to review tenure and promotion standards to recognize publishing in non-traditional sources" and to educate their faculty about "the problems of scholarly communications".
