Research Libraries: University of California Berkeley Library Partners with OpenEdition

From Today’s Announcement on the UCB Library Blog:

OpenEdition is an interdisciplinary humanities and social sciences portal with four complementary platforms: OpenEdition Books (ebooks), (scholarly journals), Calenda (academic announcements), and Hypotheses (research blogs).
2016-08-25_16-29-24It is a non-profit public initiative [from the Centre for Open Electronic Publishing (Cléo)] that promotes open access (OA) publishing, with the support of French research institutions.

Most of the content is in French but also in other European languages, including English.

The institutional subscription to OpenEdition Fremium allows the UC Berkeley community to participate in an acquisitions policy that both supports sustainable development of OA and that respects the needs of teaching, research and learning communities: no DRM or download quotas are applied.
