RavenSpace: Where Knowledge Comes to Light

RavenSpace is an online platform for media-rich books in Indigenous studies.

The first projects from this collaboration among UBC Press and other partners, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will be published in 2019.


TOME: Toward an Open Monograph Ecosystem

UW Press is pleased to publish our first open access book, Molecular Feminisms: Biology, Becomings, and Life in the Lab, by Deboleena Roy. The open access edition was made possible by a grant from Emory University as part of the TOME program, a joint initiative of the Association of American Universities, Association of Research Libraries, and Association of University Presses.


Studies on Ethnic Groups in China: Open Edition

Thanks to a new partnership between the UW Libraries and UW Press, Studies on Ethnic Groups in China, edited by UW professor of anthropology Stevan Harrell, will be our first open access book series. The open editions are made possible by a grant from the Transformation Fund of the Kenneth S. and Faye G. Allen Library Endowment to facilitate the transition toward open publishing models.


Art History Publication Initiative

UW Press is leading a nine-year initiative to publish heavily illustrated books in digital form, in collaboration with Duke University Press, Penn State University Press, and the University of Pennsylvania Press and with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
