More Publishers to Participate in UPCC eBook Collections on Project MUSE

Project MUSE announced that 13 more scholarly publishers have signed contracts to participate in the UPCC eBook Collections, coming to the MUSE platform on Jan. 1, 2012. To date, a total of 64 university and scholarly presses have contracted to include their ebooks in the initiative. UPCC (University Press Content Consortium) collections will offer top quality book-length scholarship, fully integrated with MUSE’s full-text scholarly journals, with library-friendly access and usage terms and affordable tiered pricing.

MUSE will unveil a beta version of its new search interface combining both journal and book content in late summer 2011. The beta interface will include new post-search filtering options and feature free sample book content for libraries and users to explore. The UPCC eBook Collections, available for access on Jan. 1, 2012, will be offered for purchase, with perpetual access rights and unlimited usage, downloading, and printing. Book content will be in PDF format, searchable and retrievable to the chapter level. Pricing and purchase details for the book collections will be available no later than Oct. 1.

The complete list of publishers now contracted to participate in UPCC eBook Collections on Project MUSE, along with additional details about the initiative, may be found at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/new/ebook_collections.html.
