How do you find open access (OA) content? 

Cambridge Libraries has produced a guide on some easy-to-install, OA discovery tools that search repositories, pre-print servers, etc. for you.

Open Access browser plug-ins

We would particularly recommend using Lean Library, Kopernio, Read by QxMD, and the Google Scholar Button from this browser plug-in list, because they are linked to Cambridge Libraries' online journal subscriptions.

Search engines geared towards OA discovery

In particular, Google Scholar can be configured to display the link to Cambridge Libraries through which you can access the full text if there is a subscription.
