The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 100 classic humanities texts from the University of Michigan in the areas of Japanese, Chinese, South Asian, and South East Asian Studies.

University of Michigan Press (UMP) will collaborate with the Asia Library and Centers for Japanese, Chinese, South Asian and Southeast Asian Studies to create freely available ebook versions of significant books about Asia published at U-M over the last 50 years. An advisory group of scholars, librarians, and publishers will select 100 titles from the Centers’ back lists that are out-of-print or hard-to-find and make them available in multiple ebook formats and POD. These free-to-read, high quality works about the history and culture of Asian countries will be actively marketed to promote public understanding of the region at a time when this is especially important. The project will also advance campus collaboration and catalyze a reinvigorated Asian studies front list publishing program. Based on usage tracking and advisory group input select titles will be further enhanced through creation of new editions and multimedia enrichment on the next-gen Fulcrum publishing platform.
