Cressman Library and Open Access

Many of the library subscription databases will include results with links to open access journals and articles, in addition to what the library subscribes to. This page is intended to be supplemental. You may find it to be especially useful when you have time for browsing.

Open Access Journals

Along with the thousands of journals the Cressman Library subscribes to, many of our databases include indexing, abstracting and full text to peer reviewed open access journals. This page lists databases to open access journals that aren't part of a library subscription. (UPDATE: Links are now included on this LibGuide to library databases that do also provide open access and include a separate page listing those journals).

Note: PubMed also includes links out to journals the library subscribes to. On the article abstract page, follow the full text links in the upper right corner of the page. If the library has access, these links will work. Be sure to access PubMed from the library website or LibGuides, though.
