Electronic Resources - Open Access

Due to licensing restrictions, retirees may only use electronic resources from public desktop computers in the library. This restriction is imposed by the database vendors, and enforced as part of our compliance with license agreements. This is standard practice for all database producers and all academic libraries, and not unique to the University of Guelph.

The Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) service contains free, full text, scientific and scholarly journal articles.

The Atrium, the University of Guelph institutional repository contains free, full text, quality University of Guelph resources.
