Inside is literature about open access and how to get involved, as well as the box of clues that led to the opening of the locks.

Open Access Week 2015 had the theme "Open for Collaboration". The libraries created a scavenger hunt that spanned the three libraries with hidden keys to unlock the treasure chest full of goodies and information about open access.
