Digitization and creation of freely accessible ebooks for 57 titles published by Cornell University Press, including titles in anthropology, classics, political science, and literary theory.

Cornell University Press seeks $99,553 for 1 year to make 57 outstanding works of scholarship in foundational disciplines openly accessible. The Press will use the funding to (1) continue an established methodology for selecting titles by working with library selectors and scholars to include out-of-print titles in Anthropology, Classics, and Political Science; (2) extend and enhance our existing methodology by including titles in Literary Theory that will be used in courses; (3) accelerate the digitization, delivery, and rights clearance for out-of-print titles and the dissemination of OA monographs in EPUB3.0.1; and (4) promote the titles across multiple platforms (including Cornell Open, JSTOR, Project MUSE, HathiTrust and OAPEN) and assess the impact on a global scale via user surveys from librarians at 1,700 institutions of higher learning in the U.S. and at the member institutions of 180 global consortia.
