We are delighted to announce that Duke University has become the Hydra Project’s 17th formal partner.
In their Letter of Intent, Duke say:
“One of Duke’s core principles is “knowledge in the service of society.” Interwoven throughout the educational curriculum and research enterprise of the university is a culture of public engagement with real-world issues. One way the Libraries have sought to embody this value is by promoting open access to scholarly research as an institutional priority. We strongly believe that when scholarly research is freely available, it has the potential to reach more people, accelerate new discoveries, and make a bigger impact on the world.
“We see the Hydra Project as an opportunity to leverage the substantial investment we and our partner institutions have already made in preserving the knowledge that is generated on our campuses and sharing it with the world.”
