Open Access

November 20, 2009

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation recently awarded four university presses with a grant to support development of a collaborative university press electronic book project. The grant, to be administered by NYU Press on behalf of collaborating presses at the University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, and Rutgers University, will fund multifaceted research into the feasibility of developing a consortium of university presses to deliver e-books to libraries on a shared platform. The initiative will be run by and for scholarly publishers, with a primary focus on the needs of university presses and their library customers.
