The Collective is an initiative of the Council of Australian University Librarians and operates under an opt-in participation model. Find out if your university library is participating in the Collective.


If you’re an academic at a participating institution and you would like to either publish an open textbook on the Collective platform or participate in the Academic Authors Community of Practice, please contact your library for information about how to get involved.


If you are a staff member at a participating university library, you can join the Library Staff Community of Practice by signing up for the email list. Find out more.
