CloudSource OA, the new content discovery platform from SirsiDynix, aggregates and fully exposes the global body of open access (OA) articles and open educational resources (OER). The index currently includes about 60M open articles, eBooks, and other learning resources. The metadata is enriched with more detailed publication information, subjects, abstracts, related materials, and reviews. In addition, helpful widgets deliver permalinks, citation management, links to the publisher page, and more. Unlike Google Scholar and other discovery providers, all of these OA resources contain one-click access to full text—no user authentication required and no wading through millions of irrelevant results with misleading links.  

While some of the open access articles are found in gold and diamond journals, most OA articles are from hybrid journals. And most discovery services will not expose these OA articles unless you subscribe to these hybrid journals. CloudSource offers a free collection analysis that reveals exactly how much of your subscription content is open access, including a detailed breakdown of your subscriptions by package, journal title, and subjects.  

Join Rick Branham, SirsiDynix’s VP of Content Solutions, for this free, 45-minute webcast to learn more about how CloudSource OA can transform your approach to collection development by leveraging OA and OER. And find out how the free collection analysis can help you save money on high-OA subscriptions, while improving the user experience.
