However, rather than only funding a paywalled collection, an increasing percentage of titles become open access. By committing to purchase one of the UMP EBC packages (listed under "Investment Options"), libraries: Support the conversion to open access of at least half (~40) of University of Michigan Press scholarly monographs in 2022. (If we realize our goal, we will expand this percentage in succeeding years.); Receive perpetual access to the remaining restricted frontlist titles and term access to the backlist (~1,700 titles), which will otherwise remain closed to non-purchasers; Support authors’ ability to publish innovative, digital scholarship leveraging the next-generation, open-source Fulcrum platform...."
