Australasian libraries are invited to join us for a free webinar about Knowledge Unlatched, including information about Round 2, how to pledge and why KU’s innovative approach to open access is attracting publishers and libraries alike. Speakers include:
Dr Virginia Barbour, Executive Officer of AOASG
Dr. Frances Pinter, Executive Director of Knowledge Unlatched; and
A/Prof Lucy Montgomery, Deputy Director of Knowledge Unlatched;
KU’s Partnership Manager Christina Emery will be on hand to handle technical questions about the sign-up process.
After a highly successful Pilot project last year in which 28 scholarly ebooks were funded by 297 libraries all over the globe in order to make them openly accessible, Knowledge Unlatched (KU) returns with a Round 2 Collection of 78 ebook titles.
Australasia played a key role in ensuring the success of the KU Pilot. Dial in to find out how Australasian libraries can continue to support a global shift towards OA for books.
