CEU Press are pleased to announce that Miami University is a new subscribing member to two packages on their Opening the Future programme.
The library at Miami University has chosen to boost their local collection by subscribing to two packages of books in Political Science and History. This means that staff and students now have unlimited and concurrent access to 100 different eBooks on subjects including mediaeval Europe, human rights, Jewish studies, European economics and politics, communism and post-communist societies.
As with all Opening the Future members, Miami has increased their online book collection with titles relevant to the university’s research and teaching needs - and at the same time their membership fees are funding new frontlist titles in OA format. Through the support of member libraries like Miami’s all over the world, CEU Press has already been able to publish 18 new OA books (with more funded and planned) which are freely available for download from Project MUSE, OAPEN, JSTOR and other open platforms. You can read about, and find links to, all the OA books on the progress page: ceup.openingthefuture.net/forthcoming
If you would like to see how your library might similarly enhance your open and closed digital collection by becoming a member of Opening the Future, you can read more about the programme, and sign up in just a few clicks at ceup.openingthefuture.net or go via Lyrasis or Jisc.
