Luminos have also announced the first member libraries to be part of the scheme, see here for more information http://www.luminosoa.org/site/for_libraries/. Member libraries can support the scheme by paying between $1000-$20,000+. This money goes towards supporting further monographs, forming the 'library subsidy' shown in the diagram below. Membership to the scheme also entitles the member institutions to various benefits including discounts on publication fees, the opportunity to be represented on the Luminous Advisory Board, as well as a yearly 50% discount on up to 50 University of California Press books.

The publication costs are covered by a variety of sources, as illustrated in the digram above.
'For each title published, UC Press makes a significant financial contribution, which is augmented by membership funds from Luminos Member Libraries. Each author is then asked to secure a title publication fee to cover the remaining costs. Any additional revenue from Luminos Member Libraries, as well as funds from optional purchase of print editions, help support a waiver fund for future Luminos authors. Together, this shared financial support helps ensure a sustainable monograph publishing ecosystem for authors, readers, institutions, libraries, and UC Press.' (Luminos press release, October 2015)
