The Duke Open Monograph Award: Celebrating Open Access to Scholarship in the Humanities

In 2018, Duke joined the Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem (TOME) pilot, a 5-year collaborative effort between the Association of American Universities (AAU), Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and Association of University Presses (AUP) to make scholarly books open access. Over the past 6 years, the Duke University Libraries has seen 15 Duke-authored monographs to publication as both traditional print runs and digital open downloads through the Open Monograph Award.

At this lunch event sponsored by Duke University Libraries and the Franklin Humanities Institute, 3 authors of TOME-funded books will share their experience and the outcomes of publishing their books openly.

Dr. Frances Hasso, Professor of Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies, will discuss her book Buried in the Red Dirt.
Dr. Robert Mitchell, Professor of English, will discuss his book Infectious Liberty.
Dr. Sarah Wilbur, Associate Professor of the Practice of Dance, will discuss her book Funding Bodies.

The panel will be moderated by Haley Walton, Librarian for Education and Open Scholarship, who administered the Open Monograph Award.

Lunch will be served. Please register to ensure there is food for all.
