The Claire T. Carney Library has joined more than 250 libraries participating in MIT Press’s new Direct to Open initiative. This publishing model will help to fund the publication of nearly 90 open access books per year. Open Access (OA) is a set of practices and principles that allows publications to be shared online without cost to the reader or other access barriers. This effort supports equitable access to scholarly material and enables authors to publish open access without additional fees and regardless of their institutional funding.
As an added benefit for participation, our campus has access to an archive of over 2,500 titles that would otherwise be gated. These titles cover a variety of disciplines such as psychology, artificial intelligence, graphic design, neuroscience, and more. Browse the collection and gain full access to download or read these books online.
