Ensuring academics and other researchers have immediate access to free, online articles is one of the goals of open access. Digital Scholarship Librarian Andrea Wirth shares insights on open access, why it is such an important issue for higher education institutions across the globe, and how the University Libraries support open access to UNLV faculty and student research.
The new Leisure Zone on Lied Library's second floor is now open. This area is home to the leisure reading collection, feature film DVDs, current newspapers, and a selection of popular magazines. You can also explore more than 5,000 electronic magazines and newspapers through our new PressReader kiosk and app. We also included some new furniture with additional power, so sit back, plug in, and recharge.
