Our 2023 event

Just as its name suggests, Access Lab provides a safe space to explore, discuss and learn from your peers. We have an online program packed full of case studies, best practice and discussions to get you thinking about improvements you could make in your organization. Along with plenty of advice and practical takeaways to help you along the way. Keep an eye out for program announcements in the New Year! 

Your free registration also provides the opportunity to watch sessions on demand after the conference to continue your learning.

Access Lab has online sessions at timings to suit everyone.

Monday 20 March –2pm-6pm GMT, 10am-2pm EDT (EMEA and AMER regions)

Thursday 23 March – 2pm-6pm AEDT (APAC region)

We are part of a global community, so we want to make it easy for you to join from wherever you are.

This year we will be holding sessions at different times to allow maximum participation from all around the world. We know online doesn’t suit everyone, so we will also be holding in-person regional forums - keep an eye out for further information.

At the online conference, we will announce the winner of our 2023 Best publisher user experience award. The award puts the spotlight on publishers who put users at the heart of their service design, with the simple aim of providing easy access to content. Your fantastic entries are currently putting our judging panel hard at work!

To find out what to expect from the 2023 conference, take a look at our Access Lab 2022 sessions.

Who can attend?

Whether you are a publisher, provider, library or IT professional, the event provides the opportunity to join our global community to share knowledge, challenges and updates from across the industry. We will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have about OpenAthens and how we can help you to make things simpler!
