Van Wylen Library is participating in a pilot collection called Knowledge Unlatched. What is KU? Essentially, it creates sustainable, open access to scholarly books with long-term savings for institutions by sharing the costs. Each institution that has pledged their support has acknowledged the need for new publishing models that give broader access to information while keeping costs at a sustainable level. This pilot program makes good research available to readers throughout the world.
Once the program goal was reached, these titles were made available via a Creative Commons license. Records for each of the titles is available via HopeCat. Check back as more books are added to the collection. Currently, there are 19 titles available to be viewed.
