Carleton College joins OLH LPS model
Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 2017-12-14
We are extremely pleased to announce that Carleton College has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system. Founded in 1866, Carleton College is a small, private liberal arts college in the historic river town of Northfield, Minnesota. Best known for its academic excellence and warm, welcoming campus community, Carleton offers 33 majors in the arts, humanities, natural sciences/mathematics, and social sciences.
The Open Library of Humanities is an academic-led, gold open-access publisher with no author-facing charges. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the platform covers its costs by payments from an international library consortium, rather than any kind of author fee.
Professor Martin Paul Eve, a founder and academic project director of the OLH, welcomed Carleton College: “We are delighted to have the support of Carleton College. Open access in the humanities disciplines still remains a challenging goal, with author-pays systems from the sciences dominating the OA landscape. With the support of institutions such as Carleton, we will continue to realize our vision for OA in the humanities, while never asking authors to pay.”
