Open Access Week: Your Library Supports OA publishing and Open Educational Resources

October 17, 2018

Open for all –The DeWitt Wallace library is committed to open access and disseminating the scholarly and creative works of our community to the widest possible audience. You may read more about our philosophy and policies in our Library Publishing Services document.

As a member of the Open Textbook Network, Macalester is helping promote access, affordability, and student success through the creation and use of open educational resources.
Our role as publisher for open textbooks and open educational resources is to provide faculty with technical and, in some cases, start up stipends.

Featured project: Grenzenlos Deutsch

A small pool of funds is available to faculty to assist with open access journal author fees or in starting a new OER project. More info:
