Open Access

"Open access (OA) literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions." (Suber, 2012, p. 4). Texas A&M University Libraries is an active advocate of open access, believing that open access can help address both the price barriers and the permission barriers that undermine global access to the products of Texas A&M University’s scholarly and creative work, as well as helping alleviate the serious issue of providing Texas A&M scholars access to the world’s scholarly literature due to rising subscription costs."
