Better thinking with library collection budgets; digitization of Libète newspaper published in Haiti in Kreyòl

The full story is wonderful and all should read! I wanted to highlight the end:

This BHS-dLOC-MIT Libraries partnership provides access to content not available through the existing subscription-based models and exemplifies MIT Libraries’ commitment to social justice and open, accessible, and equitable scholarship. It also constitutes a promising alternative model to providing access to content, exemplifying the Libraries’ vision.

I super appreciate, respect, and share love and joy with BHS, dLOC, and MIT for this important work, for Libète, as well as for demonstrating an alternative model for providing access to content. Instead of many libraries each paying subscriptions, there is tremendous opportunity for libraries to invest collection budgets in creating new Open Access digital content that is shared with all.
