Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

ACLS Humanities E-Book (HEB) is an online collection of more that 5,400 books of high quality in the humanities, accessible through institutional and individual subscription. HEB is available to entire campus communities. Using any web browser, faculty, students, staff and library patrons of subscribing institutions can view and search the HEB collection from campus offices, libraries, dorms and remotely when off-campus. An institutional subscription to HEB includes unlimited, simultaneous multi-user access from any Internet-connected location.

The HEB collection allows users to perform keyword and Boolean searches, search full-text across all titles in the collection, in selected titles or by select series, by author and title, as well as by Library of Congress subject headings for highly accurate results. Users may also access online book reviews from the major journals.

The HEB collection offers a user-friendly interface that features well-formatted text and hypertext links for efficient navigation.

Usage statistics by title are tracked by the University of Michigan and are available to participating libraries and ACLS Humanities E-Book, which shares these statistics with publishers and authors when reporting royalties. Instructions for accessing usage statistics are available on the Librarian Resources page. Fair-use rights and restrictions apply to printing and downloading.

The HEB Collection

Together, the digitized page-image titles and new XML e-books comprise the HEB collection. Over 10,000 titles have now been reviewed and selected for possible conversion into electronic format. A List of Titles to which we have secured electronic rights is available online.

A distinctive and especially valuable feature of this collection is that all the works in this space are searchable as a collection and in depth: such an integrated electronic series greatly enhances the value of the aggregation to users and goes beyond the sum of its individual titles.

In addition, HEB includes the important reviews of these titles through links to other sites, including JSTOR and Project MUSE, expanding the context of the discussion.

Fields currently covered include the following: African History, American History, Animal Studies, Archaeology, Art and Architectural History, Asian History, Australasian/Oceanian History, Biblical Studies, Bibliographic Studies, Byzantine History, Canadian History, Caribbean History, Central European History, Comparative/World, Eastern European/Russian History, Economic History, Environmental Studies, European History, Film and Media Studies, Folklore, Hip Hop Studies, Islamic Studies, Jewish Studies, Latin American History, Law, LGBT/Queer Studies, Linguistics, Literature, Literary Criticism, Medicine, Methods/Theory, Middle Eastern History, Musicology, Native Peoples of the Americas, Performance Studies (theater, music, dance), Philosophy, Political Science, Religion, Science/Technology, Sociology and Women's Studies
