CMU Joins Universities in Open Access Deal with ACM
Carnegie Mellon University has joined three leading universities in entering into transformative open access agreements with the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the world’s largest scientific and educational computing society.
The Libraries now offer access to LabArchives Professional Edition for research and Classroom Edition for teaching and learning for all CMU faculty, staff, and students, at no cost. The new license will save CMU users $21,000 in out-of-pocket expenses each year, as current users are no longer going to be required to spend $15 per semester on individual licenses for the classroom edition.

Carnegie Mellon University, a longtime proponent of open-access research, is championing an international movement to revolutionize academic publishing.
The university recently reached a transformative agreement with the scientific publishing giant Elsevier that prioritizes free and public access to the university’s research. This comes at a time when universities around the world are working to transition the current subscription system of scientific journal publishing to new open access business models.
