Open Access at UT Austin

Learn more about Open Access and what is happening at UT Austin to improve access to research.


How to Use This Guide

This guide is intended to provide a brief introduction to open access (OA); what it is, why it's important, how UT Libraries supports OA, 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 (contact info to the right).
