How to Find Books

Finding Open Collections

Listed on this page are collections that offer Open Access books or journals, images and videos. Open access materials are freely accessible, but in some cases an account may be necessary to download the materials. Open Education Resources (OERs) are freely accessible and are open to be reused, adapted and/or shared.

Finding Open Access materials on the Davidson College Library website:

  • One way to find Open Access collections is through our A-Z Database list. Filter the Database Types to "Open Access".
  • Another option is through the library catalog, search your topic or subject term and filter the results with Availablity "Open Access" on the left hand side.
  • A third option is to browse the curated list below and link directly to the open collections and textbook options listed.
