E-Books Coming to Project MUSE!
 
Project MUSE is very pleased to announce that it will offer e-book collections alongside its existing e-journal collections. Beginning next year, e-book collections will be available for purchase alongside MUSE journal collections, with an integrated discovery environment that will allow end users to browse and search journal and book content side-by-side.

MUSE
will partner with many of the same publishers who currently contribute journal content in MUSE to offer high quality, peer-reviewed academic books electronically.

The e-books program, called Project MUSE Editions, has to date signed contracts with 18 university press publishers to include books from their upcoming scholarly monograph frontlists.
Books will be offered for purchase on a twice-yearly seasonal (Spring/Fall) basis. Libraries will "pre-purchase" access to a collection of the frontlist titles included in the upcoming season's publishing schedule.  Preliminary information from the 18 confirmed presses indicates that the initial Fall 2011 offering will contain upwards of 350 books, across a broad range of disciplines. The anticipated collection size will continue to grow as more publishers sign on. MUSE expects to offer in its first season both a complete collection of all books in the program, and selected subject-based collections. Subject collections will be built around areas of critical mass among the specific books included, and are expected to complement MUSE's existing strengths in disciplines such as literature, history, and religion
 
 Please read the full announcements for more details and for the list of university presses confirmed to add books.
 
More New Titles Announced for 2011
 
Four more titles have been added for 2011 and supplement the 30 titles previously announced as joining MUSE next year.
 
MUSE's collection of literary journals is expanding with the addition of two well known titles, New England Review and Ploughshares. They join Minnesota Review and Packingtown Review, previously announced as joining MUSE in 2011.  
 
The four additional new titles will join MUSE’s Premium Collection.
 - Community Literacy Journal 
 - Dictionaries: The Journal of the Dictionary Society of North America
 - New England Review
 - Ploughshares
 



More Archival Content Added
 
MUSE participating publishers continue to add more of their archival issues to MUSE journal content. Back issues for 14 titles were just added and are available online to subscribers. Eight of the 14 titles now have their complete run in MUSE, meaning that subscribers to those titles have access to Volume 1, issue/number 1 through the most recent issue of the journal. See the list of all titles with archival content. The 14 titles that just added back content are:
 

MUSE Journals Searchable on JournalTOCs
 
All MUSE journals may be searched in JournalTOCs. JournalTOCs is a large, free searchable collection of scholarly journal Tables of Contents (TOCs) maintained in a university in the United Kingdom.  JournalTOCS contains TOCs for over 14,000 journals collected from over 600 publishers. Academics, librarians, students, and researchers will find JournalTOCs useful for discovering new articles as soon as they have been published online in the scholarly literature.
 


Promotional Materials for 2011
 
Just a reminder to subscribers that the MUSE discipline brochures, updated for 2011, are now available. All 21 brochures have been updated to include the new titles, where appropriate, coming to each discipline in 2011. Other materials available for training and promotion include posters, bookmarks and guides to searching MUSE. Many librarians have found the brochures and bookmarks useful in instruction sessions and for faculty outreach.  
 
Promotional materials are complimentary to MUSE subscribers. See all promotional materials and place an order
