Welcome to the Lever Initiative from the Oberlin Group of Libraries | Lever Initiative

“We’re delighted to launch the Lever Initiative blog, through which we’ll keep you updated of our progress during the research phase of this exciting project.

You can find out more about the Lever Initiative in the ‘About’ section of this site. Please keep visiting our blog, as we’ll be providing regular updates and posting early findings from our research program here, which we hope you’ll contribute to.

Publishing is going through an exciting evolutionary process and we – the Liberal Arts Colleges community – have the opportunity to shape that future in the best interests of scholarship.

We look forward to receiving your comments and ideas to help test and enrich our early thinking, so that by the end of the year we will have a firm sense of where Liberal Arts Colleges should focus our efforts to encourage new and more open models of publishing.”
