Webinar Roundup: University of Michigan Press Ebook Collection

by Kathryn Beaton on March 22, 2019

The University of Michigan Press Ebook Collection (UMP EBC), a comprehensive collection of our scholarly ebooks for sale to libraries, has been live since January. The UMP EBC is fully accessible on Fulcrum, a leading community-developed, open source platform for digital scholarship developed with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Fulcrum offers users the ability to read books with associated digital enhancements, such as: 3-D models, embedded audio, video, and databases; zoomable online images, and interactive media. You can see sample open access titles at: https://www.fulcrum.org/michigan.
