What are Open Access Resources?
Open Access refers to resources (scholarly research articles, graduate dissertations, even books) that are freely available for viewing and/or use. These materials can be an excellent supplement to library resources. Many scholarly and peer-reviewed journals have opened their back issues to open access and many other publications have established themselves to partial or total open access for all issues. Throughout this page you will find many ways to discover and gain entry to Open Access materials.
