In the humanities and social sciences, books are still a preferred format of scholarly communication. OA books have never received as much attention in the OA debate as OA journals and articles. However, the number of titles is growing significantly, funding opportunities are improving and so is the infrastructure for OA books. This session will explore what has been achieved so far and what needs to be done to further improve the sustainability, awareness and attention for OA books.
