You can find sources of Open Access information on this new webpage. It includes links to free material offered by commercial and scholarly publishers, and previously unpublished theses now available online.
Are you a PhD candidate who will soon be finishing your thesis? After you leave the University you won't have access to many of the online resources offered by the Library. Come along to this new course for Doctoral students to find out how to get open access scholarly resources. This is one of the sessions in the Doctoral Skills programme.
A book about the Open Access movement written by an enthusiatic supporter of open access publishing is:
John Willinsky, The Access Principle: The Case for Open Access to Research and Scholarship, Cambridge, Mass., 2006.
