Free Online Resources

Looking for free online resources?  The library has compiled a list of free resources in the LibGuide, Free Online Journals, Books, & Databases.  Resources are separated into journals, books, and broadly by subjects; Pharmacy/Toxicology, Basic Sciences, Earth and Biological Sciences, and Science & Technology.

An example of a recent addition is the Environmental Science Digital Collection from the University of North Texas.  This resource contains several open access resources which strive for an accurate and balanced scientific view on environmental issues and their potential consequences.  It focuses on policy and includes information on climate change, emissions, land use, sustainable development, water issues and biodiversity from a wide range of countries.

Do you have a resource we don’t know about?  Add it in the comment area here, or in the LibGuide.
