JHU Libraries is excited to support MIT Press’s Direct to Open initiative, which funds the open access publication of high-quality, peer-reviewed books through the collective contributions of libraries all over the world. MIT Press has announced they will be able to offer all 80 of their 2022 scholarly monographs and edited collections as open access for anyone to read.

JHU Libraries is committed to working alongside other institutions to create an open, accessible, and sustainable scholarly communications future. We celebrate Direct to Open as an excellent example of a collaborative open funding model created within the scholarly community.
