A project created by a recent Carnegie Mellon University graduate dares to challenge the traditional definition of an artist's book, and you can find it in the University Libraries' catalog.
Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and the Public Library of Science (PLOS) today announced a two-year open access agreement that allows researchers to publish in PLOS’ suite of journals without incurring article processing charges (APC). This partnership brings together two organizations that believe researchers should be able to access content freely and make their work available publicly, regardless of their access to funds.

Before all locations of the University Libraries closed on March 20 to support the social distancing measures that prevent the spread of COVID-19, library faculty and staff were already taking steps to prepare the CMU community for the transition to remote instruction. Pivoting quickly to scan print materials, move office hours online, and consult on copyright issues—among many other tasks—the Libraries’ responsive action minimized disruptions to the teaching, learning and research mission of the university during this rapidly changing time.
