ACLS Humanities Ebook (ACLS HEB)










Vendor: ACLS

The American Council of Learned Societies Humanities Ebook Collection is a collection of over 5,700 scholarly books, from over 125 publishers, sold as a subscription package to over 800 library subscribers. ACLS HEB is a collection curated by scholars for scholars; members of ACLS learned societies nominate books for inclusion, and Michigan Publishing licenses them and pays royalties to contributing publishers. ACLS HEB is unique among e-book collections in three ways:
  • It is curated by scholars, for scholars;
  • It is hosted on the open-source Fulcrum platform;
  • The curation process has invested in unique and otherwise hard-to-access backlist content.
