23,000 Ebook Titles Will Be Available From UPCC/Project MUSE by End of 2013; New Subject Collections and Subscription Options Also Available
New From UPCC/Project MUSE:
Project MUSE is pleased to announce that 2013 pricing is now available for the UPCC Book Collections, along with several new purchase options and a new current-content subscription offering. The UPCC collections include scholarly books primarily in the humanities and social sciences from more than 80 university presses and related not-for-profit publishers, and will make available more than 23,000 digital books by the end of 2013.
Among the additional purchase options available to libraries are a new Subject Collection offering, Ecology and Evolution, for which both backlist and frontlist collections will be available, and current collections in Language and Linguistics, a subject area previously only available in an archive collection.
A further new option for accessing the UPCC scholarship on MUSE is a Current Subscription offering, which provides faculty and students with unlimited full-text access to more than 7,500 books published in 2011, 2012, and forthcoming in 2013. With affordable tiered subscription rates, libraries may choose to subscribe as a method for examining ebook usage at their institution, and determining which collections and books would be best suited for permanent acquisition. An Archive Subscription is also available, providing unlimited access to over 16,000 UPCC books published in 2010 or earlier for a very reasonable fee.
Seventeen additional publishers will be contributing content to the UPCC Book Collections on MUSE during 2013, including the University of North Carolina Press, The MIT Press, University of Illinois Press, University Press of Florida, Louisiana State University Press, Catholic University of America Press, Presses de l’Université du Québec, and the Central European University Press. Title lists for newly available UPCC collections should be ready shortly.
