ACLS Humanities E-Book Adds More than 400 New Titles

The complete collection now contains more than 3700 titles.

From the ACLS [American Council of Learned Societies] Humanities E-Book Blog:

ACLS Humanities E-Book is pleased to announce that we have just added 404 new titles to the collection, and MARC records for these books are now available for download.

With this latest release, we are expanding the areas of philosophy and film and media studies by forty-seven and twenty-nine titles, respectively; as well as adding titles in legal history, linguistics and literature, and several other categories. This round includes eighty-three award-winning titles. HEB is also adding two new special series, Medieval European Studies and West Virginia and Appalachia, both from West Virginia University Press, and is releasing the final three installments of the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum, completing this nine-volume series.


In addition to downloading the records directly from the HEB website, subscribers will also be able to obtain our records from WorldCat in the near future, complete with OCLC IDs. We anticipate that this will make managing data for all digital library holdings much simpler for those subscribers that draw on WorldCat. We are in the process of working with OCLC to import the cumulative records; this process should be completed in the next few weeks.

More info, title lists, etc. in the complete blog post.
