The University Press Content Consortium (UPCC) has collaborated with Project MUSE to host over 15,000 e-books on the MUSE platform. This database was launched on January 1, 2012, and is fully integrated with MUSE’s content from 500 journals in the humanities and social sciences to form a seamlessly searchable database of books and articles that provides scholarly content from 192 university presses and learned societies at a very affordable price. Carnegie Tier 4 & 5 universities may receive an additional 20% and 40% discount respectively if a purchase contract is signed by Aug. 31, 2012. As has always been the case with journal content on MUSE, UPCC Books on Project MUSE will offer unlimited usage, downloading, and printing for purchasing libraries. Book content is offered in DRM-free, chapter-level PDFs. SUSHI and COUNTER-compliant usage statistics and free MARC records are available.
