There are major updates to our tools and data to make permissions checking easier, faster, and clearer for libraries on our new website, with their new name, “Shareyourpaper.org Permissions.” On the new website you’ll find our new API, streamlined bulk permissions checking spreadsheets, a larger open dataset, and more details about how we’re doing permissions checking. These developments build on a year’s experience of maintaining the database daily, using it in Shareyourpaper.org, and feedback from the community.

Many thanks to Our Research for partnering with us to build the first version of the Shareyourpaper.org Permissions API. We’re also grateful to the Arcadia Fund, which has funded this effort and all the tools described above.
