Public Books Database

With university classrooms and libraries shuttered because of the COVID-19 crisis, scholars are facing disruptions not only in their teaching lives but also in their ability to access research materials. In response, many academic presses have made hundreds of their titles freely accessible online. The Public Books Database aims to catalog such resources in a single location and to highlight titles of particular interest. View the list (We’ll be updating regularly as additional materials are made available).

Project Euclid

Project Euclid was developed and deployed by the Cornell University Library, with start-up funding provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and is now jointly managed by the Cornell Library and Duke University Press. It was originally created to provide a platform for small scholarly publishers of mathematics and statistics journals to move from print to electronic in a cost-effective way.

Through a combination of support by subscribing libraries and participating publishers, over 70% of the journal articles hosted on Project Euclid are openly available. As of 2018, Project Euclid hosts 1.8 million pages of open-access content.

Our Mission

Project Euclid’s mission is to provide powerful, low-cost online hosting and publishing services for theoretical and applied mathematics and statistics scholarship worldwide. As a non-profit community-driven international partnership of academic libraries, independent and society scholarly publishers, and scholars, Project Euclid actively supports broad, sustainable access to this scholarship.

Pluto

A group of highly talented engineers and researchers who are passionate about scholarly communication.
We’re here to break down barriers in academia.

Not only do we enjoy solving problems surrounding the academia world, but we also plan to open a new era of research and academia through new forms of exchanging information and knowledge. By supporting universities and scholars through technology, we believe scholarly communication can fully be powered by researchers.
We provide a SaaS solution that includes both a discovery and academic search engine customized for your institution.
It also comes with a consultancy-based solution, in which we provide real feedback on how you can cut back on your subscriptions based on what your researchers need and don’t need, as well as how to provide the most resourceful environment for your scholars and researchers.

We help walk through your subscriptions and bundles, and visually compare search results to identify what improvements and reductions can be made for your university.

Open Michigan

Welcome to the new Open Michigan! As a partnership of the University Library and Health Information Technology and Services, we are the home for all things open at the University of Michigan—including expertise and services for open educational resources, open data, and open publications.

Open Michigan encourages scholars and students to maximize the impact of their work through open sharing. As a public institution, the University of Michigan is committed to serving our university community, the residents of the state of Michigan, and the broader world in which we live. That means making sure that publicly-funded research (and its underlying data!) is accessible to citizens, providing a platform for teachers and students to find and re-use high-quality educational materials, and educating scholars about the benefits of sharing their work with the world beyond our campus.

Throughout our site you’ll find resources for doing all of this and more.

OER Knowledge Cloud

The OER Knowledge Cloud is being updated regularly by professional librarians and by volunteers.

The Cloud data, whether that be journal articles (i.e. papers in periodicals), reports (e.g. government, industrial), books or other items, is fully searchable. The items are freely extractable from the database and or linked to a relevant URL.

We are anticipating that Athabasca University Library will become a repository for all data that deals with Open Educational Resources and will be able to be the source of electronic copies of many references.
