HighWire Press to Include e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection
Duke University Press and HighWire Press announced a major expansion of their partnership to include the e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection. Beginning with the 2014 collection, e-Duke Books, an annual collection of at least 100 new electronic books published by Duke University Press as well as more than 1,500 backlist titles, will move from ebrary to HighWire’s Open Platform and the newly developed Folio ebook solution.
With the launch of the e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection on HighWire, Duke University Press’s readers and library subscribers will benefit from HighWire’s long record of innovation and reliability. The integrated platform will connect users with content more effectively by incorporating searching across all of Duke’s publications, not only ebooks but its highly ranked journals as well.
Key features of the e-Duke Books collection on Folio will include a device-friendly reading experience, viewable in PDF and mobile-optimized e-reader formats; toll-free intercontent linked access to cited content also hosted by HighWire, including journal articles from Duke, Oxford University Press, and SAGE Publications; and increased content granularity for better discovery, sharing, and navigating.
All e-Duke Books Scholarly Collection content will be available on the new platform in December 2013. The current 2013 collection will be unaffected by this change and will continue to be hosted by ebrary through the end of this year. Throughout 2013, e-Duke Books customers will receive frequent communications to ensure a smooth and timely transition. Additional library transition resources, including a growing list of FAQs, are now available here.
