• Middlebury College joins OLH LPS model

    Posted by Martin Paul Eve on 2018-06-10


We are extremely pleased to announce that Middlebury College has joined the Open Library of Humanities' Library Partnership Subsidy system

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 Middlebury College: “We are delighted to have the support of Middlebury College. Middlebury has a fantastic track record in terms of open access. In particular, the College’s support of other OA initiatives, such as Lever Press, is highly commendable. We are honoured and delighted to have Middlebury’s support and will use this to further our mission of fee-free OA in the humanities.”

“We are pleased to be able to lend our support to the important work that OLH is doing to make real the transition to a non-APC based Open Access model for the humanities. It is through these sorts of investments that our library is trying to play its part in making Open be the norm in all disciplines. “ Mike Roy, Dean of the Library, Middlebury College
