Open Access isn’t meaningfully open if it can’t be found. Over 20 million scholarly articles are now available as Open Access (OA), and nearly half of recent article are OA. However, a lack of adequate discovery infrastructure has hindered use of the OA corpus in academic libraries. Recently, however, a number of services have begun to tackle the OA Discovery problem. These include browser plugins like Unpaywall, the Open Access Button, and Kopernia; purpose-made search interfaces like oaFindr and ScienceOpen; open web APIs like oaDOI and DOAI; and integration into other search tools like Web of Science. We will discuss these and other tools, with an emphasis on how they can be integrated today into library services and decision-making.
