From the Fordham University Press Blog:
Fordham University Press and Fordham University Libraries is one of eight institutions to receive a grant in the Humanities Open Book Program, a program jointly sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
The grant allows the Press to produce twenty-one freely accessible eBooks, initially published by Fordham University Press, with an emphasis on American Philosophy. The Press has published more than 3,000 scholarly books since its founding in 1907 and has long been recognized as a leading American publisher of philosophy scholarship. Twenty-one essential backlist texts were selected for the Humanities Open Book Program in an effort to bring them out of hiding and make them more accessibly available to students, scholars, and researchers.
The out-of-print titles, which will become available freely through the Library’s open access institutional repository, DigitalResearch@Fordham, represent some of the leading scholars and thinkers in the field of philosophy.”
