Subject: [Lyroffers] Fall Featured Offer: University of Michigan Press Fund to Mission Open Access Books Program


The University of Michigan Press (UMP) has been taking steps to develop a publishing program that aligns with their mission and commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility. Based on these principles, UMP has been transitioning to an Open Access (OA) monograph model called "Fund to Mission."

Libraries are invited to continue to participate in the University of Michigan Press Ebook Collection (UMP EBC) by way of their current fair pricing. However, rather than only funding a paywalled collection, an increasing percentage of titles become Open Access. By committing to purchase one of the UMP EBC packages, libraries:

  *   Support the conversion to 75% (~60) of University of Michigan Press scholarly monographs in 2023;
  *   Receive perpetual access to the remaining restricted frontlist titles and term access to the backlist (~2,000 titles), which will otherwise remain closed to non-purchasers;
  *   Support authors' ability to publish innovative, digital scholarship leveraging the next-generation, open-source Fulcrum platform.

2022 Fall Featured Offer

For a limited-time UMP is extending the following special offer on all of their ebook packages that can help your library's stewarded funds go further:

A 5% discount will be applied to the purchase of any of the following collections with a commitment to purchase made by December 16, 2022:

  *   UMP EBC Frontlists

     *   The Transitional Collection (2021 - 2023)

        *   Upfront purchase of 2021, 2022, and 2023 collections
        *   Libraries will own these titles in perpetuity as they become available and will have term access to the backlist through 2023.

     *   2023 Frontlist Collection (including complementary term access to backlist)

  *   UMP EBC Backlists

     *   Single Year Backlist Collection (2012 - 2021)
     *   Backlist Bundle (2012 - 2021)
