UPCC eBooks on MUSE
A new source of scholarly ebook collections in the humanities and social sciences - current and backfiles
AMICAL members are probably already aware of Project MUSE's new venture into ebook distribution, UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE. MUSE has agreed to extend its consortial discount to AMICAL member institutions purchasing UPCC ebook collections.
Full information on collection options, pricing and orders is accessible to AMICAL members in the Licensed Resources area of AMICALconnect (requires joining group).
Background on the UPCC Collections
The University Press eBook Consortium (UPeC) was a group of university presses that joined forces in 2009 with the idea of offering their ebooks through a common platform and business model that would be sustainable into the future. UPeC awarded the contract for creating and distributing the ebook versions of their content to Project MUSE. The result is the University Press Content Consortium (UPCC), now numbering nearly 70 university presses that offer via the MUSE platform some of the richest and most diverse collections of current scholarly ebooks available.
