Hi All,

Apologies if this announcement has crossed your desk already, but I wanted to be certain that everyone is aware of the next Knowledge Unlatched open access collection in 2017 that includes another ebook collection, a new journals collection, and a new separate ebook collection from Language Science Press. Around half of the ebooks in this collection are published by university presses.

Key to note is the upcoming webinar on June 14 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern to learn more. Register at this link.<http://www.knowledgeunlatched.org/register-for-north-america-webinar/>

I'll be glad to answer any questions.
