Central European University (CEU) Press is pleased to announce that the Central Library of Zürich / Zentralbibliothek Zürich is the latest to subscribe to our Opening the Future collective funding programme.
Zentralbibliothek Zürich has signed up for the ‘OA Supporter Membership’ package. Some libraries may not need one of our backlist book packages but they still wish to access the future OA monographs that CEU Press will publish. For these institutions the OA Supporter Membership is a good choice: with this package there are no backlist books to incorporate into the library’s catalogue but their membership fee allows CEU Press to make new books open in ways that do not burden authors or their libraries with BPCs. This way Zentralbibliothek Zürich grows their eBook collection with ongoing relevant material, while also helping to increase a global OA collection.
Using funds accrued through the scheme, the Press has already been able to publish ten new OA frontlist books, with more in the pipeline.
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 CEU Press’s OtF website: ceup.openingthefuture.net/about/
