MacEwan University joins OLH LPS model
Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 2018-04-23
We are extremely pleased to announce that MacEwan University has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system.
Founded in 1971, MacEwan University inspires its students with a powerful combination of academic excellence and personal learning experiences. Offering more than 65 programs including undergraduate degrees, applied degrees, diplomas, certificates, continuing education and corporate training, the university provides a transformative education in a creative, collaborative and supportive learning environment where creativity and innovation thrive.
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 MacEwan University: “We are delighted to have the support of MacEwan University. Without the support of institutions, our model for open access in the humanities, which grows by the day, would simply not be possible.”
Sandy Stift, Associate Dean of Libraries, stated that “MacEwan University Library is pleased to be joining an international community of subscribing libraries, collaborating in support of sustainable open access publishing in the humanities.”
Located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, MacEwan University offers a unique student experience that opens up diverse pathways for achievement and growth.
