Knowledge Unlatched Rolls Out Pilot Results

Knowledge Unlatched released a preliminary report on its first pilot, which summarizes the results in PDF and MARCXML files available as individual downloads. Contents include the pilot’s objectives, the creation and marketing of the pilot collection, and key outcomes. Its mission was to create a sustainable route to open access (OA) for specialist scholarly books by working with libraries and publishers to share the costs of OA.

According to the progress summary, the pilot “brought together stakeholders from every part of the monograph ecosystem in order to develop workflows, test key assumptions about the ways in which libraries and publishers might work together, and to ‘unlatch’ a Pilot Collection.”

Knowledge Unlatched will release a more detailed report sometime in the next few months.
