Effective immediately, LM will represent KU in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Spain, and South Africa, while iGroup will cover all of Asia and Oceania.

'We are pleased that LM and iGroup are supporting the Knowledge Unlatched team to promote Open Access for Humanities and Social Sciences monographs, journals, and services in a number of additional countries,' explained Sven Fund, managing director of Knowledge Unlatched.

'KU is one of the most successful players in the Open Access space,' says Jussi Kettunen, executive vice president of LM Information Delivery. 'At LM, our aim is to provide our customers with the latest cutting-edge initiatives that support our library customers in achieving their goals. We are therefore delighted to partner with Knowledge Unlatched to combine their innovative approach to Open Access with our local expertise in these territories.'

'KU is the leading initiative in the Open Access space,' concluded Lee Pote, founder and CEO of iGroup. 'We are very glad to support and promote Knowledge Unlatched. It is an opportunity for us to work in the field of Open Access as well.'
