For Librarians

OAPEN works with publishers to build a quality controlled collection of open access books and provides services for publishers, libraries, and research funders in the areas of dissemination, quality assurance, and digital preservation.

OAPEN operates three platforms: the OAPEN Library, the OAPEN Open Access Books Toolkit, and - in partnership with OpenEdition - the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB).

The OAPEN Library is set up to host and disseminate OA books. Usage of the collection is reported following COUNTER-compliant usage statistics.
