Open Access by Peter Suber

Open Access by Peter Suber (MIT Press, 2012)

In the wake of last week’s international Open Acccess Week and especially the Library-sponsored faculty conversation with UCSF Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery Rich Schneider, I’d like to call everyone’s attention to the new ebook by Peter Suber titled Open Access (Cambridge: MIT Press, 2012) which answers most of the questions regarding OA. Called the “indispensable book on the subject for researchers, librarians, administrators, funders, publishers, and policy makers,” it will become OA in June 2013, one year from the date of publication but is now available to the UC Berkeley community through ebrary.

Other recent library aquisitions are continously updated through OskiCat and also through the library subject pages for French, Italian, and Iberian Studies (Spanish & Portuguese).
