The Open Access Team’s Virtual Bookshelf

To showcase the wide array of Open Access books freely available online, and in the spirit of International Open Access Week, LSHTM’s team in the Library have put together, in true Waterstone’s style, a shelf each of their favourite selections of Open Access books and materials. These are available to read, watch, download and re-use, all for free.

Simply click below to go to our interative Open Access bookshelf, where you can download the ‘shelved’ books
