Amherst College to launch first open-access, digital academic press devoted to the liberal arts

Amherst College announced Wednesday that they're launching a new "digital publishing venture" -- Amherst College Press --  that will offer peer-reviewed books written by leading scholars in the humanities and the social sciences that are then carefully edited and made available for free online.  College Librarian Bryn Geffert appears in a video announcement, describing the need for the Press and Amherst's plans.
