Liverpool University Press is pleased to announce that the library at Lancaster University is the latest subscriber member to Opening the Future

Lancaster has subscribed to the Modern Languages Package which means their staff and students now have unlimited and concurrent access to two monograph series: Contemporary Hispanic and Lusophone Cultures, and Liverpool Latin American Studies. In total they will get multi-user electronic access to 36 titles. Books include award-winning titles such as Porous City: A Cultural History of Rio de Janeiro and Thinking Barcelona: Ideologies of a Global City alongside widely adopted texts such as Business History in Latin America and Shining Path: Guerilla War in Peru’s Northern Highlands.

As with all Opening the Future members, Lancaster is increasing their online book collection with titles relevant to the university’s research and teaching needs - and at the same time, their membership fees are funding new frontlist titles in an open access format. Through the generous support of member libraries like Lancaster all over the world, Liverpool University Press is close to the target for producing its first new (fully OA) books funded entirely by the programme.
