This guide is intended to provide a brief introduction to open access; what it is, why it's important, and how the UT Austin community can be more involved. There are many open access resources available and this guide does not intend to provide links to all resources. UT Austin faculty, students, and staff who are interested in learning more about open access or about UT Austin specific resources should contact Colleen Lyon, Head of Scholarly Communications.
