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. Many examples are listed here, along with sites that are entirely free and open access. You may find this page 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 Research Guide to library databases that do also provide open access).

PubMed will also link 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 a Research Guide, though. Try PubMed w/Full Text Finder links.
