TCU authors can make their journal articles freely available to the world

The TCU Library is excited to announce it has signed several innovative Transformative Agreements with scholarly publishers: Wiley, Institute of Physics and Company of Biologists.

These agreements expand the reach and influence of our research and creative scholarship, and increases equity by reducing barriers for readers worldwide to access TCU's scholarship. They allow our TCU authors to make their journal articles freely available to the world.

The Transformative Agreements are year-to-year and could change for 2024.

TCU Library Westside Closure – Summer 2024

Beginning Monday, May 13, 2024, all three floors of the library’s westside, including access to the collections, will be closed the entire summer 2024. The library’s westside will undergo a significant HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system maintenance project to enhance the overall infrastructure of the library.

During this closure, all physical materials, including the Federal Government Documents Collection, MUST BE requested online for retrieval and pick up.
