“We are pleased to announce that the library at the University of Salford has joined the Liverpool University Press (LUP) Opening the Future initiative.
With this membership, staff and students at the University gain access to titles from two series of LUP’s books: ‘Contemporary Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures’ and ‘Liverpool Latin American Studies’. In total they’ll be able to read 37 multi-user eBooks on contemporary Hispanic culture, including titles on languages, politics, popular culture, and business. After three years of membership, the University will retain perpetual access to them all.
As with all Opening the Future members, this means that Salford have increased their online book collection with titles relevant to the University’s research and teaching needs – and at the same time they are helping to fund new frontlist titles in OA format. Liverpool University Press uses all membership fees from this programme to produce new open access monographs which will be free, and available to all, globally. LUP has already been able to earmark funding for two titles, with another five to be announced soon. You can read about the forthcoming OA books on our progress page: lup.openingthefuture.net/forthcoming. …”
