Open Access resources are free to read on the open internet. They allow anyone to read and research, for free, from anywhere. In January 2017, SFU Senate endorsed the Open Access Policy (OAP) acknowledging the commitment of SFU faculty, students, and postdoctoral fellows to share the products of their SFU research with the broadest possible audience.
Ways to find Open Access material:
- Search in Summit, SFU's Institutional Repository
- Open access databases
- Open access journals
- Search for articles, journals and repositories through the Directory of Open Access Journals and OpenDOAR
SFU Library carries over 1.5 million books and thousands of journals. Alumni are able to:

See our full Alumni borrowing privileges for more information.
SFU librarians are always happy to help alumni with their research, such as:
- recommending particular resources for finding information on your topic
- suggesting the best strategy to approach your research question
- helping with search techniques
- helping you track down hard-to-find items.
Ask a Librarian for help with your research.
