Access to Research – Discover a world of published academic research at your local library

Access to Research is an excellent service for members of the public or school students who may wish to access research, but who don’t have access via a paid for subscription service. Over 10 million journal articles are now available, free of charge, via participating public libraries across the UK.

From home, you can search via the Access to Research search interface, which will allow you to view abstracts.  You can then visit your nearest participating public library, where the Access to Research search interface will allow you to access the electronic full text.
