Library Subscription Periodicals

ACC Library Services subscribes to many online academic journals restricted to use by ACC students and staff. If used from off-campus you will log in using your ACCeID.

Open Access Periodicals 

From "Open access literature is digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions." Creative Commons licensed research promotes access and re-use of scientific and scholarly research. The United States National Institute of Health (NIH) requires research articles written as a result of funding by NIH to be available through PubMed Central, an open access repository. Science Commons launched in 2005 to making scientific research available with Creative Commons licensing.
