ACLS Humanities eBook


ACLS Humanities E-Book (HEB) is an online collection of nearly 4,700 books of high quality in the humanities, accessible through institutional and individual subscription. HEB is available to entire campus communities. Using any web browser, faculty, students, staff and library patrons of subscribing institutions can view and search the HEB collection from campus offices, libraries, dorms and remotely when off-campus. An institutional subscription to HEB includes unlimited, simultaneous multi-user access from any Internet-connected location.

Important for both its content and its usefulness as a research tool, HEB currently reaches a combined FTE of several million. The HEB collection is also now available to individuals through their membership in any of the 74 ACLS constituent learned societies for a low annual fee.

The HEB collection allows users to perform keyword and Boolean searches, search full-text across all titles in the collection, in selected titles or by select series, by author and title, as well as by Library of Congress subject headings for highly accurate results. Users may also access online book reviews from the major journals.

The HEB collection offers a user-friendly interface that features well-formatted text and hypertext links for efficient navigation.
