It's summertime, and we're taking our books on a field trip. As part of our mandate to connect local and global communities, we're dropping off scholarly books at YYC's Little Free Libraries.
What is the Little Free Libraries campaign? You can read more about it here. Its mission is
"To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations."
That sounds a lot like what we do at the University of Calgary Press. It's the reason why we became an Open Access publisher in 2010, and why we continue to produce and promote peer-reviewed scholarly works through both traditional and innovative channels.
