Open Access and Creative Commons

USQ Library supports the use and creation of open access content. Open access allows others to revise, redistribute, repurpose and share material through open licences such as Creative Commons. The idea behind open access and open education is that educational content should be accessible to all. 

There are varying shades of "openness". Each open licence comes with its own conditions of use that need to be respected. One prominent condition of an open licence is to attribute the copyright holder of the work.
