The Libraries at West Virginia University (WVU) are the latest to subscribe to Liverpool University Press’s OA monograph funding programme.

WVU’s history dates back to 1867 and is now home to students from 112 nations. The WVU Libraries encompass seven libraries statewide, including a Health Sciences Library, Law Library, and the West Virginia and Regional History Center. Onsite collections include over 1.8 million books, 1.2 million e-books and 176,000 journals. The library has chosen to subscribe to a package containing two monograph series: Contemporary Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures, and Liverpool Latin American Studies. In total they will get multi-user electronic access to 37 titles. 

Books in the package include award-winning titles like Business History in Latin America and Shining Path: Guerilla War in Peru’s Northern Highlands. After three years of membership, staff and students at WVU will retain perpetual access to all the eBooks in the package.
