Knowledge Unlatched (KU) makes scholarly content freely available to everyone, while contributing to the development of the Open Access (OA) infrastructure. With support from around 600 libraries worldwide, KU has already made 1,500 books and 23 journals freely available in Open Access to over four million users. The titles selected for the current KU Select Books Collections are chosen by the library community in order to make sure that the selected titles are relevant to users worldwide.
The KU Selection Committee currently comprises about 180 librarians from all over the world. New members are further being sought to enhance this team of experts selecting the most relevant content for KU Select 2020 HSS Books.
Members of the KU Selection Committee have an active say in selecting the quality and scope of titles to be included in the KU Select HSS Books Collection through a quick and easy voting process that takes place on the online portal. Between March 16 and April 7, 2020, members have an opportunity to review the submissions from publishers and to make their selection. Based on the experience gathered thus far, the voting process takes a maximum of two hours, depending on how many subject areas are selected.
