Open Access Week

This week is Open Access Week in library land…and all across the land really.  Open access sources are extremely important to research.  Not only are they free, but they also allow the free spread of ideas that research fields need to prosper.

Here at the Lewis Library, our amazing library Kelly Plass has put together a research guide to help you verify good open source material versus ones that might not be so good:

Once you have gone over her guide, we also recommend you check out this short documentary about the need for more open access sources for scholarship:
