This guide highlights resources related to education.

What is Open Access



Open Access (OA) is an international movement that makes scholarly research literature freely available to anyone through the Internet. What does this mean to K-12 educators? Educators who do no have access to scholarly journals through NSU can access scholarly literature published in OA journals. 

Go here for a short history on Open Access.

Go to NSU Library's A-Z Databases: See  Open Textbook Library for a list of open access  resources and Directory of Open Access for a list of journals and articles.
