New Open Access Digital Library
The Open Access Digital Library <http://grweb.coalliance.org/oadl/oadl.html>
( http://grweb.coalliance.org/oadl/oadl.html <http://grweb.coalliance.org/>
) is a FREE collection of over 4,000 scholarly, peer reviewed journals in a
variety of subject areas. We developed this library to help supplement
libraries' paid subscriptions to digital content and to also create unified
access to free scholarly resources.
We culled together all the open access journals in Gold Rush and created a
searchable full-text library. Some of the collections included in the
library are Highwire Open Access Journals, Nature Journals Online, The
Directory of Open Access Journals, Government Serials List, PubMed Central
and BioMedCentral. We have also included several individual open access
journals and links to large digital repositories such as DLESE, the Digital
Library of Earth System Education.
The best way to find items in the library is to search by journal or
database name. You can also browse for journals through our A-Z list. If
you know of open access resources that aren't in the library, please let us
know. You can send an email including a link to the resource to
[log in to unmask]
You don't need to be a Gold Rush subscriber to search the library. It's
free and open to anyone.
We hope this is a useful resource for patrons and librarians alike.
