Streamlining access to Open Access content with Unpaywall

At the end of May, Langara Library started using Unpaywall to make it easier for our users to find Open Access content. This is material that is freely available for all to use, but finding it can sometimes be difficult. Unpaywall harvests Open Access content from over 50,000 publishers and repositories, making it easy to find and use. We’ve enabled to Unpaywall API in our link resolver (the Get Full Article link you sometimes see in your search results¬†Langara L image with the text Get Full Article) and if Unpaywall finds an Open Access version of the article you’re looking for, it will provide a link.

This should make it easier for our users to find open access copies of articles. Contact the library if you have any questions or want to know more about Open Access!
