Publishers have agreed to offer a discount to libraries purchasing additional formats of KU titles to avoid paying twice. Libraries can claim a 35% discount directly from publishers when placing their order for additional formats. KU encourages publishers to include a reference to the KU Open Access version to enable libraries to make informed decisions about additional format purchases.

KU is also in discussion with aggregators to come to a solution about OA titles being available on other platforms.
