Knowledge Unlatched (KU) has announced its sixth pledging period which is now open until the end of November. During the pledging period, libraries can choose to invest in any of the 17 different collections and initiatives all revolving around Open Access. This year KU is working together with various partners to support them in making their content available Open Access, including names such as Routledge and IntechOpen. At the same time, KU is raising support for its core program: KU Select Books, a selection of books curated by the KU Selection Committee consisting of more than 180 librarians from around the globe.

Further information on the current collections can be found on the KU website or via the Jisc Catalogue page. In addition, the informative webinar on the new 2019 collections can be found here.

The KU team in Berlin would welcome your feedback or questions. Please contact Tom Mosterd ( with any questions you may have.
