JSTOR announced the following:

Boston Library Consortium (BLC) … is the latest consortium to join Path to Open, a pilot program to support the open access publication of new groundbreaking scholarly books that will bring diverse perspectives and research to millions of people. Designated as an opt-in program for BLC’s member institutions, eight libraries signed on immediately, including Boston Public Library—the first public library to join Path to Open. …

BLC members joining Path to Open so far include: Boston Public Library, Brandeis University, Trinity College, Tufts University, University of Massachusetts-Amherst, University of New Hampshire, Wellesley College, and Wesleyan University. The college and university libraries support the learning and research needs of more than 50,000 students and faculty, while Boston Public Library serves over 6 million people.
