Open Access Week 2020: How to Read Our Books for Free on Open Access Platforms

Today’s post is the last in our Open Access Week blog series. Did you know that you can read many of our books for free? Duke University Press is committed to offering many of our titles in an open-access format. We participate in multiple OA programs, including Knowledge Unlatched, TOME (Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem), and SHMP (the Sustainable History Monograph Pilot). Each year we release about a dozen books that are open access. You may be able to read these books online via your own library. You can also find some of them on Project MUSE, OAPEN, and on our own website.
