Open Access, Open Educational Resources and temporary free access
Open Access resources are resources that are made freely available for use. The Open Access movement has been gaining ground and is seeking to break down barriers to information. In the case of scholarly publishing, Open Access is particularly focused on providing free access to scholarship that has been publicly funded. Several funding bodies now have made it a condition of the funding that any publications from the research will be made available.
Open Educational Resources are materials created for educational purposes that are available for use and reuse in the public domain, or under a Creative Commons License.
In response to the Covid-19 social distancing, several publishers are providing temporary free access to their resources. We will post links to these resources here, but please note the limited timeframe and the conditions that each publisher is putting on usage - the library will not be able to license any services that you choose to use once the free access period is over.
Note: many "free trial" options are not available for everyone, common restrictions that have applied to Bastyr include restrictions to Medical Schools only, or to semester based schools.
