K-REx stands for the K-State Research Exchange, Kansas State University's Institutional Repository. Items in K-REx are available through Open Access, which you've been hearing a lot about this week. These are items that are available freely, without subscription or other access fees that you or your library may otherwise have to pay. Which means that really, K-REx is our way of showing the world some of the cool things that K-Staters have done. Items in K-REx really do get seen from all around the world, by people in nearly 200 countries. So, what are our most widely viewed items in K-REx?
