e-Duke Scholarly Books Collection
"Duke University Press is developing a new electronic book product for trial. We have invited a small set of libraries to participate in the e-Duke Scholarly Books Collection pilot program in 2008. It is the goal of Duke University Press as a nonprofit scholarly publisher to create an innovative and library-friendly product. The e-Duke Scholarly Books Collection will provide perpetual online access to at least 100 new scholarly books published by Duke in the humanities and social sciences in a calendar year, as well as access to all of the Press's books now available in electronic form, contingent on the purchase of the current year's titles. The e-Duke Scholarly Books Collection will be hosted on the Ebrary platform, with an official start date for the pilot program of January 1, 2008"
