Democratizing Research Access: Overcoming Exclusion from Well-Resourced University Research Libraries

For a growing number of scholars, gaining access to adequate library resources–both books and digital– has become increasingly challenging. The problem of unequal research access is exacerbating larger problems of inequity across academia, by creating barriers for those working outside of large, well-resourced universities.
