Selected examples of open access journals from across the country are presented, published by universities / libraries, societies, and government. Open access archives (disciplinary and institutional) are explored. The author discusses open access archives from an author's perspective. A brief overview of open access policies and author's rights are presented, and emerging trends and new jobs for librarians.
