Just Announced: E-Books Coming to Project Muse Next Year

From the Announcement:

Project MUSE, a leading provider of humanities and social science periodical content for libraries, is very pleased to announce a new initiative to incorporate scholarly book content into its research platform and product offerings. Beginning next year, e-book collections will be available for purchase alongside MUSE journal collections, with an integrated discovery environment that allows for browsing and searching journal and book content side-by-side.

[Clip]

The e-books program, called Project MUSE Editions, has to date signed contracts with the following publishers to include in the new offering books from their upcoming scholarly monograph frontlists: Baylor University Press, Brookings Institution Press, ELT Press, Indiana University Press, Johns Hopkins University Press, Kent State University Press, Penn State University Press, Purdue University Press, and University of Illinois Press. Talks are ongoing with several other MUSE and HFS client publishers, with more participants expected to be announced before the end of this year.

[Clip]

Book content on MUSE will be offered via a purchase model, on a twice-yearly seasonal (Spring/Fall) basis. Libraries will "pre-purchase" access to a collection of the frontlist monograph titles included in the upcoming season's publishing schedule from the participating publishers. Details on the books included in the collection will be available prior to the purchase. Books will be released electronically simultaneous with the print publication, and libraries that have purchased a collection including the title will have immediate access on the MUSE platform.

[Clip]

MUSE expects to offer its first e-book collection for the Fall 2011 season, with between 250-500 frontlist monograph titles anticipated for inclusion in the collection.
