The Open Educational Resources tab has just that—resources that are free and open to the public.
These are available in two ways—gratis and libre.
Gratis is when the research is made available for people to read without paying for it, however they cannot make copies or modify it.
Libre does the same thing, but it gives more rights like creative commons license and people are able to use the work as well as read it.
If you go into the tab and click on the link “Open Educational Resources” you will find similar definitions as above and then listed on the left hand side of the page are 30 different open access resources. These range through all sorts of subjects. Feel free to poke around in them!
