Enabling Discovery of OA EBooks with OAPEN 


This pilot project is a collaborative effort between SCELC and OAPEN to amplify the usage of open access (OA) resources in SCELC member libraries. The goal of the project is to jumpstart the integration of open access ebooks and provide a data driven analysis for the expansion and continual investment by SCELC. It will be accomplished through the following:

  1. Customized feeds of OAPEN's Open Access books to participating SCELC libraries.

  2. Analysis of the usage statistics and trends.

  3. Feedback from participants.




This project is supported by a grant from SCELC's Project Initiatives Fund (SPIF) and the OA EBook Discovery Project Working Group
