King's College London joins Opening the Future at Liverpool University Press

Posted by Tom Grady on June 28, 2022 at 1255

We are pleased to announce that the library at King’s College London has recently become a new subscriber to the Opening the Future membership programme at Liverpool University Press (LUP). 

Granted a Royal Charter in 1829, King’s have a long-standing reputation in the humanities, law, science, psychiatry, medicine, dentistry, nursing, and the social sciences.

With their new Opening the Future membership, staff and students will now gain access to titles from two modern language series of LUP books:  'Contemporary Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures' and 'Liverpool Latin American Studies’. In total they’ll be able to read 36 multi-user eBooks on contemporary Hispanic culture, including titles on languages, politics, popular culture, and business. After three years of membership, the library will retain perpetual access to the same books.

In turn, Liverpool University Press uses all membership fees from Opening the Future to fund the production of new open access books which are free, and available to all, globally. 

Signing up to Opening the Future takes only a couple of minutes and can be easily slotted into a library’s existing acquisition workflow through Jisc in the UK, LYRASIS in North America and a simple enquiry form for the rest of the world.

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 at LUP, you can read more about the programme and benefits at
