Milne Library publishes free open access resources; Geneseo authored works, Open SUNY Textbooks, rare books, and more on Open Access Week

Two SUNY Geneseo faculty members released open-access publications this week. Supported by the Milne Library publishing team, one is a textbook on learning the Chinese language and the other an essay on Bob Dylan. Both are accessible online free of charge to anyone. The release coincides with both International Open Access Week (a global event in support of free, immediate, online access to scholarship)  and the release of two publications developed through the Open SUNY Textbook Program, a collaboration Milne administers with SUNY libraries and faculty members to develop free online textbooks.

Geneseo Authors 

The Geneseo authors are Jasmine Tang, a lecturer in the Department of Languages and Literatures, who published the textbook Let’s Speak Chinese and Eugene Stelzig, distinguished teaching professor of English at the college, who wrote the essay Bob Dylan’s Career as a Blakean Visionary & Romantic.
