What are Transformative Agreements?

Transformative agreements allow affordable open access publishing with major publishers by shifting what the Library was already paying for subscription-based content to supporting open access.

Saint Mary's College is part of SCELC (Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium), which has negotiated several transformative agreements with multiple publishers. The details for each of these SCELC agreements with the publishers are linked below.
