PALINET Library Consortium Supports SEP


Philadelphia, PA, July 18, 2005PALINET is pleased to support ongoing, free access to the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (SEP) on behalf of PALINET Members.

PALINET recently joined the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy International Association (SEPIA) for all of its member institutions. All dues for membership will be used to match the NEH Challenge Grant, with all funds placed into an endowment exclusively for the SEP.

By choosing to endorse this worthy endeavor — i.e. contributing the maximum recommended amount over a three-year period to SEPIA — PALINET supports the open-access publishing initiative that ensures all its members can benefit from the continued availability of this unique philosophy resource.

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (plato.stanford.edu) is an authoritative, comprehensive Web-based reference work about philosophy, useful to scholars of all levels as well as the general public. Published through Stanford University’s Center for the Study of Language and Information, the Encyclopedia’s refereed entries are created and maintained by hundreds of experts from the international philosophy community.
