KU has a fully transparent model for KU Select, and its costs are financed by a management fee of 15% which is split between publishers and libraries, with each paying 7.5%. In addition to personnel and material expenses, operational and outreach costs arise from cost-effective arrangements with library consortia. All of these expenses are already included in the unlatching fees. There are no other additional charges apart from VAT and sales taxes which will be added as applicable.
