Library Investments

The library, independently and in cooperation with consortial partners, has made strategic investments in a number of external initiatives supporting open access infrastructure or publication of open access journals and books from reputable publishers.

Open Acces Infrastructure

Open Access Publications

The items above include library support for original open access publishing. Additionally, the library has supported numerous activities to digitize and make available items from our collections, including through initiatives with the HathiTrust and Internet Archive, many but not all of which are freely accessible to the public.
