OUP and MIT Press Launch New Database

The MIT Press, in partnership with Oxford University Press full-text monograph library Oxford Scholarship Online, is launching MIT Press Scholarship Online.

MIT Press Scholarship Online, which is a database of XML-enabled titles from MIT Press, will be hosted on the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform beginning this month. UPSO and MIT Press use XML workflows to enhance discoverability, says Ellen Faran, MIT Press director. “We are convinced that [XML] features such as chapter-level tagging and chapter abstracts will encourage the use of our monographic content.”

UPSO aggregates books from 13 university presses on a single platform and uses a federated search engine. MIT Press Scholarship Online is designed to leverage the tools of the UPSO search interface to provide librarians, researchers, teachers, and students with access to MIT Press titles, as well as all 12,897 titles and 25 subject areas in UPSO.

On its FAQ page, MIT Press explains its decision to partner with Oxford University Press and UPSO is based on partnerships: “UPSO operates a mature frontlist publishing platform for monographs online with deep penetration into the academic library market. We believe that joining with Oxford in an UPSO partnership will provide users around the world with access to our authors’ excellent scholarship.”
