Project Muse ebooks

Description: 

From the Vendor:

Available on the Project MUSE platform beginning January 1, 2012, UPCC Book Collections will provide libraries, researchers, and students digital access to a wealth of high quality book-length scholarship, fully integrated with MUSE’s electronic journal collections. Offerings include Current Collections, comprised of books published or scheduled to publish in 2010, 2011, and 2012, available as single-year collections or with special discounts for the purchase of multiple years. Current Complete Collections include all books available across all disciplines for the applicable calendar year, while Current Subject Collections offer books in selected disciplines by calendar year. Also

available are Archival Foundation Collections, consisting of many thousands of titles published prior to 2010, allowing libraries to procure access to a critical mass of significant content at very affordable prices. Subject collections available include Archeology and Anthropology; Classical Studies (Archival Collection only); Film,
Theater and Performing Arts; Global Cultural Studies; Higher Education; History; Language and Linguistics (Archival Collection only); Literature; Philosophy and Religion; Poetry, Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction; Political Science and Policy Studies; and United States Regional Studies.

Project MUSE focused on providing the library community with the widest possible array of collection purchasing options. There are 47 different collections to choose from as well as 11 specially-priced three-year current bundles.

We are not offering single title purchasing or patron-driven access options.
