Collaboration Provides UC Press Books on the Web

Through an innovative collaboration between the California Digital Library (CDL; and the University of California Press (UC Press;, more than 60 UC Press books are now freely available on the Web at The 60 titles are concentrated in international studies, European history, and literature. These titles are in addition to 12 digital monographs digitally published by CDL's eScholarship program for scholars in California International and Area Studies, an eScholarship community, and the UC Press book Tobacco War: Inside the California Battles by Stanton A. Glantz and Edith D. Balbach.

The unique partnership between the CDL and its academic press is a core component of the CDL's eScholarship program, which is designed to support innovation in scholarly communication. Digital publication of traditional formats, such as the scholarly monograph, as well as of new formats, is a key theme of eScholarship's commitment to supporting experiments in the dissemination of research and scholarship.

The partnership is re-thinking and re-engineering editorial and production processes while exploiting the latest technologies for rapid publication. The new monographs are translated on the fly from XML to HTML using the Cocoon Publishing Framework. This allows maximum flexibility in how they are presented (offering, for example, large print displays of all titles), while maintaining flexibility for re-purposing the files for future platforms—a central concern for eScholarship, which strives to provide persistent access to the content it hosts.
