Open Educational Resources (OER): Open Access

This LibGuide provides resources on free and open educational resources in a variety of formats.

Open Access

Open Access is a movement by scholars and the public to overturn the current system whereby publishers restrict access to articles.

The OpenCourseware Consortium stated: "We envision a world in which the desire to learn is fully met by the opportunity to do so anywhere in the world - where everyone, everywhere is able to access affordable, educationally and culturally opportunities to gain whatever knowledge or training they desire."

For faculty open access provides "better visibility and a higher impact to their scholarship."

For students open access ensures they get the best possible education and are not restricted by the selection of scholarly journals or other resources their campus povides.
