Yale University Press Adds Digital Content to OCLC NetLibrary

Yale University Press is now adding digital content to NetLibrary (www.oclc.org), OCLC’s platform for econtent to libraries worldwide. Among notable titles in the Yale collection are Ali Allawi’s The Occupation of Iraq, E. H. Gombrich’s A Little History of the World, the Yale Series of Younger Poets, the Annotated Shakespeare, the Lamar Series in Western History, Yale University Press Health and Wellness series, and others.

More than 400 Yale University Press titles are currently available through NetLibrary, and another 200-plus titles will be added after the backlist is digitized.

"These titles represent works that promote a greater understanding of our world, and will be of great benefit to users of all libraries, and particularly academic institutions," according to Chip Nilges, vice president of OCLC’s business development. Users now have access to more than 150,000 titles from 400-plus publishers in OCLC NetLibrary’s econtent platform offered through 15,000-plus libraries worldwide.

"It’s fitting that as we enter into our second century, we begin to establish partnerships that will help us fulfill our founding mission—to aid in the discovery and dissemination of knowledge—well into the future," said John Donatich, director of Yale University Press.

George Parmly Day and his wife, Wilhelmina, founded Yale University Press in 1908. As one of the oldest and largest U.S. university presses, the Yale collection includes books and materials designed to advance scholarly investigation and interdisciplinary inquiry, stimulate public debate, provide education in and out of the classroom, and enhance cultural life.
