The MIT Press has announced two new consortial relationships with the Partnership for Academic Library Collaboration and Innovation (PALCI) and the Greater Western Library Alliance (GWLA) for Direct to Open (D2O) and extended the deadline for libraries to commit to support the collective action model to November 30, 2021.
Libraries that commit to support Direct to Open before November 30, 2021 will earn exclusive benefits. They gain immediate, term access to an archive of gated monographs, including classic works from Rosalind Krauss, Daniel Dennett, Noam Chomsky, Paul Krugman, Sherry Turkle, and many more. D2O participating libraries also receive special discounting on the MIT Press's trade books collection on the MIT Press Direct platform. If D2O does not reach the success threshold for 2022, participating libraries are assured term access to the archive collection without paying the fee.
PALCI and GWLA will handle central licensing and invoicing for Direct to Open for their member libraries. Thanks to the centralized service, participating libraries will not have to negotiate agreement terms and will be able to use the invoicing processes that they are used to through their consortium.
In addition to PALCI and GWLA, central licensing and invoicing is available to members of the following consortia: Jisc, the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN), and the NorthEast Research Libraries (NERL) and Center for Research Libraries (CRL).Click here to read the original press release.
