Day 106. A fun invitation from OPB

This is relevant to the project I think! This morning I got a really fun email invitation to write a guest blog post for a new blog project at OpenPress Books, one of my favorite OA publisher. The idea is write something about OA, and for me that means the intersection of OA and OER, how accessible monographs means that I can recommend books to my students that, in the traditional publishing model, would not be accessible: at best we would have the book in the library, in which case one student could access it. But with OA online, that means an unlimited number of students can access the book title.

So, for example, here's the OPB page for Ruth Finnegan's Oral Literature in Africa: wonderful!
