Origin of UPCC

The University Press e-book Consortium (UPeC) emerged in 2009 to explore the feasibility of a university press–based e-book initiative. Five press directors serve as UPeC principals: Steve Maikowski, New York University Press; Alex Holzman, Temple University Press; Marlie Wasserman, Rutgers University Press; Eric Halpern, University of Pennsylvania Press; and Donna Shear, University of Nebraska Press.

UPeC planning and development was supported by two grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Working from the outset with two groups of experienced consultants—Informed Strategies, which surveyed the needs of the library community, along with Chain Bridge Group, which developed and tested the business model—UPeC began its search for a business partner at the beginning of 2011.

JHUP's success in balancing the interests of publishers and librarians informed UPeC's selection of MUSE, according to Steve Maikowski, director of the New York University Press. "The efficiencies and cost savings resulting from this collaboration will bring far more revenue to participating presses than current third-party models," he said. "Because both initiatives are university-press based, there is a strong mission alliance."

In March 2011, MUSE announced it had entered into a new partnership with UPeC to create UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE. The merger is part of a multimillion-dollar commitment to the ongoing growth and expansion of Project MUSE, according to director Dean Smith. "By leveraging the MUSE brand and investing in technology that ensures the program's future performance, we can grow at a rapid pace while continuing our 15-year tradition of providing quality scholarly content at a fair price."

UPCC Books launched on Project MUSE in January 2012. The book collections offer thousands of peer-reviewed digital books from over 65 major university presses and scholarly publishers and allow books to be discovered and searched in an integrated environment with content from nearly 500 journals currently on MUSE.
