Launching the Project

 

Since the initial call to arms, we've had well over 100 responses and the academic committees continue to grow. We're proud to announce that the project has a name! We are called the Open Library of Humanities (OLH) and our domain is openlibhums.org. We have a presence on Twitter as @openlibhums and we also have a Facebook page.

The next steps that were taking are:

  1. to continue building the committees and getting the right people on board.
  2. to promote our new website, with the new name.
  3. to formally register the organisation.
  4. to get the committee infrastructure up and begin dialogue about the specifics.
  5. to form a realistic budget and to apply for the funds, with the advice of PLOS.
  6. to make it a reality!

If you'd like to be kept up to date, please subscribe to our newsletter, which we'll use (in addition to online venues) to ensure as much transparency as possible in this startup phase.
