Open Access means making published research freely available to anyone with an internet connection rather than keeping this work behind a subscription paywall. Research can be shared either through the deposit of work in a repository or by publishing in a journal that makes the work freely available immediately.
Open Access has many benefits: it results in more exposure and higher citation rates for researchers, practitioners can access outputs and researchers can comply with grant rules.
If you're looking for a specific item, the easiest way to track it down is by using the library catalogue, iDiscover. Type a few words from the book or book chapter or journal or journal article title into the search box. If the item is available online then you should be able to get to it directly by clicking the relevant publisher link. If it isn't online, then iDiscover will tell you where the hard copy can be found.
If you're looking for items on a given topic, add a few keywords to the search box on iDiscover. Be careful with your search terms, and try synonyms if you're not getting the results you hoped for.
