OAPEN Library Membership Program

Your Library Toolkit for OA Monographs Through OAPEN

 

OAPEN provides a dedicated infrastructure to support the discoverability of OA books. OAPEN hosts OA titles from many academic book publishers (including all titles provided through KU) and collaborates with research funders through its deposit service (Wellcome, European Research Council, Austrian Science Fund, Swiss National Science Foundation). Currently over 5,000 OA titles are hosted on OAPEN, accounting for nearly half of all the titles available in the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB).

The OAPEN Library membership programme is set up specifically for libraries and their institutions. Thanks to their membership contributions, member libraries make possible the vital work of OAPEN and DOAB for libraries, scholars and the general public, to provide free and unrestricted access, improve discovery, and preserve scholarly books. OAPEN members are entitled to receive customised feeds of all the OAPEN collections, obtain regular usage benchmark reports and general reports regarding the transition to OA books. In addition, OAPEN members are listed in OAPEN’s website and newsletters.
