"ITID is the first and only MIT Press journal to be published as Open Access and our collaboration with the Georgia
Tech Library has been critical to the journal successfully managing this new publication model. The Library's support
and leadership is ensuring that ITID will have more impact, a richer and more collaborative online environment, and
will be better able to serve a world-wide epistemic community. The entire ITID team - including the editorial office,
the MIT Press, and the Georgia Tech Library - will together help define the future of scholarly publication."
