The memberships support community driven OA initiatives such as the Directory of Open access Journals and discipline based OA opportunities. These memberships are all outlined below:

Through the Orbis Cascade Alliance, the University Library supports the Directory of Open Access Journals providing a portal to reviewed open access journals that meet principles of transparency and best practices in scholarly publishing. Our cost for supporting this initiative is $220/annually. In addition, DOAJ has pre-established criteria for inclusion in the directory for any journal wishing to join. This initiative helps to delineate and provide discoverability for codified scholarship from around the world. When determining which open access journal to publish in, searching DOAJ may lead you to open access journal options you may not have otherwise considered.

It also includes a significant open access archive of philosophical works. In addition, the website includes an online community of philosophers that provides a social network for the discipline. The University Library supports the archive, index, and bibliography through an annual membership subscription of $564/annually.
