Duke University Press Launches New Platform for eBook Access, Powered by Highwire Press
From Duke U. Press:
Duke University Press and HighWire Press [have just launched] a new site for reading, searching, and sharing Duke University Press’s books: read.dukeupress.edu.
Offering more than 1,600 titles and powered by the Folio eBooks solution, the site is the new home for the e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection, available to libraries for purchase.
The new site is open to all users and dramatically enhances the discoverability of Duke University Press’s content. It provides free access to the introductory chapters of every book in the collection and allows integrated searching and linking across book and journal content.
The 2014 e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection will debut on read.dukeupress.edu, and older e-books purchased through the collection must be accessed there as well.
Access via ebrary, the previous host for this content, will be discontinued in February.
