The American Council of Learned Societies
Humanities E-Book (HEB) released Round 11 of their online collection this
August. These 353 titles bring the total of the volumes in the collection to
4,315. The new round includes additional titles from two of HEB’s original
publishing partners, Oxford University Press and Harvard University Press, as
well as books from new partners such as University of Toronto Press and Michigan
State University Press.
All the titles in Humanities E-Book are
available to American Folklore Society members. The American Council of Learned
Societies Humanities E-Book (HEB) makes individual subscriptions available
through standing membership in any of the 72 ACLS constituent societies.
The subscription offers unlimited access to
4,315 cross-searchable, full-text titles across the humanities and related
social sciences. The titles in HEB have been selected and peer reviewed by ACLS
constituent learned societies for their continued value in teaching and
researching. The collection comprises both in- and out-of-print titles ranging
from the 1880s through the present, and includes many prize-winning works.
Individual subscriptions are ideal for those whose school
might not yet have an institutional subscription to HEB or for individual
members of a learned society who might not be affiliated with a subscribing
institution. (A full list of subscribing institutions can be found on the
HEB website, at http://www.humanitiesebook.org/subscriptions-pricing/subscribing-institutions.html.) Individual subscriptions are USD $40.00 for a twelve-month subscription,
and American Folklore Society members can sign up via the HEB website:
