The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 20 classic humanities texts from Cornell University Press in the areas of Slavic Studies, German Studies, and literary criticism.

Cornell University Press seeks $83,635 in funding support for a 12-month effort to make 20 outstanding works of scholarship in foundational disciplines accessible to the world. We will use the funding to: 1) test and refine a methodology for selecting out-of-print titles for the program; 2) gain experience in the digitization, delivery, rights clearance and dissemination of OA monographs in EPUB3.0.1 format; and 3) analyze the results of maximizing the discovery and usage of ebooks across multiple platforms including the Press website, institutional repositories, JSTOR and Project MUSE.
