Digitization and creation of freely accessible ebooks for 25-30 texts initially published by Temple University Press, with an emphasis on labor studies.

The Temple University Press in collaboration with Temple University Libraries requests $81,974 in funding support for a two-year effort to make 25 to 30 out-of-print labor studies titles freely available online. The project team will undertake the following activities: 1) Engage an Advisory Board made up of scholars, labor studies experts, publishers, and librarians to finalize title selections and suggest experts in the field to write forewords for the books. 2) Secure rights and permissions for selected labor studies titles published by Temple University Press from 1971 to 1992. 3) Add new forewords and create new cover art for all books. 4) Digitize and distribute books with Creative Commons licensing in EPUB 3.0.1, PDF for print-on-demand, and web-PDF formats. 5) Implement a marketing plan to broadly promote the online availability of books to scholars, college students, and the general public.
