Liverpool University Press (LUP) is delighted to announce that the University of St Andrews Library is the latest to subscribe to our Opening the Future collective funding programme. Founded in the 15th century, St Andrews is Scotland's first university and the third oldest in the English speaking world. 

The University’s 10,000+ students (a mixture of postgraduates and undergraduates) and staff will all benefit from unlimited, perpetual access to the Modern Languages Package of 37 eBooks. Authors in the package include Paul Julian Smith, Distinguished Professor of Hispanic Studies at CUNY, Joan Ramon Resina, Professor of Iberian and Latin American Cultures at Stanford University, and Mary S. Gossy, Professor of Women and Gender Studies at Rutgers. 

The Press will use the library’s membership fee to publish new frontlist titles that will be freely available to all, and fully open access. Several libraries have already joined LUP’s programme since it launched in the summer and the Press will soon have accrued enough membership fees to fund their first title. We look forward to welcoming further members.

If you would like to see how your library might similarly enhance your digital collection of eBooks by becoming a member of Opening the Future, you can read more about the programme and benefits on LUP’s OtF website: https://lup.openingthefuture.net/about/
