OnDemand Webinar
Does Your Library Subscribe to Databases?

{{my.Leading Question}}

Open access content allows unrestricted access and reuse, making it free to read and use without a paid subscription. Cynthia Busse, Director of Accounts, Content Solutions, and fellow CloudSource team members, will cover all the basics in open access and open educational resources, including what open access is and why it’s important for public libraries.

This free webinar, Does Your Library Subscribe to Databases?, will:

  • Highlight the abundance of open access content beyond the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
  • Explain the challenges of accessing most of the free content that’s hidden behind paywalls.
  • Expose the ways libraries pay for open access content through their subscriptions (it’s more than you think).
