About "Open Access Repositories"
Open repositories are electronic services designed to preserve and provide open access to journal article reprints or preprints, audio, video and other media, and/or digital data. Unlike electronic journal or book publishers, they do not generally themselves provide editing or peer review services, though they may provide access to edited, peer-reviewed documents. Repositories may be maintained by an institution for the benefit of its own authors and researchers, or be open to deposits from any researcher in a given subject area.
Instruction to Enhance Information Literacy Skills
Library instruction is available to any class offered at Marywood University. The instruction sessions can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your class. A librarian will work with you to develop a customized library instruction session to meet the needs of your students. Contact a librarian a week in advance to plan a library instruction session.

It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning."
