Knowledge Unlatched (KU) – from success to success.

The KU Pilot Collection, a major step in creating a sustainable Open Access for Humanities and Social Sciences books. Now close to 300 libraries from 24 countries have joined. ANU Press has also joined. Knowledge Unlatched is a truly global initiative, involving 137 participating libraries from North America, 77 from the UK, 27 from Australia & New Zealand and 55 from the rest of the world all working together to make the Pilot Collection Open Access.

 

As the target number of 200 was exceeded, the amount that each library is paying per title was reduced from the target average price of $60.00 to under $43.00.
