eBooks: Project MUSE Announces Eight New Publishers Will Join UPCC in 2014
From Project Muse/UPCC:
Eight distinguished scholarly presses, including the recently-revived University of Missouri Press and the Chinese University Press, are confirmed to join the University Press Content Consortium (UPCC) and make their books available digitally on the Project MUSE platform in 2014. Cornell University Press, Northern Illinois University Press, Ohio State University Press, School for Advanced Research (SAR) Press, Texas Tech University Press, and University of South Carolina Press constitute the remainder of the new participants in UPCC Books on MUSE.
Their books will join the more than 23,000 scholarly titles expected to be available on the MUSE platform by the end of 2013, and will bring the total number of UPCC presses to 91.
All of the new presses are expected to make their books available in both the UPCC Collections on MUSE and the recently launched Single Title Sales program, a partnership initiative with YPB Library Services facilitated through YBP’s GOBI3 acquisition interface. Details on 2014 collections and titles will be released in October.
