from Project MUSE:

Project MUSE is pleased to welcome four additional publishers contributing titles to our Book Collections on MUSE for 2019. Arc Humanities Press, Harvard University Asia Center Publications Program, University of Missouri/Missouri Review Books, and University of Tampa Press books will be available on the MUSE platform starting next year, joining nearly 58,000 titles from more than 100 distinguished university presses and related scholarly publishers in the humanities and social sciences.

Updated pricing for all MUSE Book Collections, including new collections of forthcoming 2019 titles, is now available. All book content on MUSE is DRM-free, with unlimited simultaneous usage, downloading, and printing. Books are highly discoverable through MUSE’s relationships with indexing and discovery services, include free MARC records and COUNTER-compliant usage statistics, and are fully integrated for searching and browsing alongside the content from more than 650 scholarly journals on the platform.

MUSE Book Collections are available across a wide array of subjects in including literature, history, political science and policy studies, philosophy and religion, performing arts, and public health, among others. Area studies collections including African Studies, Asian and Pacific Studies, Native and Indigenous Studies, and several others are also available. Libraries may select collections by publication year, with volume-based discounts offered for purchases incorporating several years of backlist titles.

In the summer of 2018, Project MUSE released a newly redesigned platform offering a more robust user experience, with an elegantly intuitive interface and a suite of tools focused on the researcher. Among the exciting features available in the new design are content footnotes and references presented “in-line” with the associated text in a journal article or book chapter, a streamlined search experience with a new facet for book series, a highly responsive mobile-friendly design, and the launch of “MyMUSE” accounts that allow users to create a personal library and customize their research experience on MUSE.

Additional information about Books on MUSE is available in the For Librarians section of our site. For pricing, please contact cpers@minitex.umn.edu.

I work in Cooperative Purchasing and Electronic Resources Services (CPERS) at Minitex. I've been here since 2008, which makes me the newbie in CPERS! Before Minitex, I have played many roles in libraries including: Collection Development Librarian at Tandem Library Group, a book jobber for the K12 library world; Digital Acquisitions Specialist in the Harvard University Library; front line circ worker at the Barker Engineeing Library at MIT; and librarian at D. E. Shaw & Co., a hedge fund in NYC. Non-library Anne? I've edited travel guides and spent a year honing my customer service skills at the front desk of a ski resort (skiing in my off time, of course). And in my spare time, I run, bake, and play goalie (ice hockey!).
