Open Access Content – new database on OCLC FirstSearch service

A new database of Open Access Content on the OCLC FirstSearch service will help researchers easily find open access resources from the following well-known open content providers:

  • Biomed Central
  • Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)
  • JSTOR
  • Open Address Publishing in European Networks (OAPEN)
  • OpenEdition
  • Public Library of Science (PLOS)

Searches of this database retrieve only open access items, saving time for searchers who wish to focus their research on resources from open access sources. “Access” links in FirstSearch records will connect users to full-text open content.
