Subject: Project MUSE News:Tutorials Available for New MUSE Platform Coming January 1



New Project MUSE Platform Goes Live January 1, 2012
Tutorials Now Available

Project MUSE's redesigned platform, incorporating both books and journals in an integrated interface, goes live on January 1, 2012. A preview of the new platform is available on our beta site at http://beta.muse.jhu.edu. Over 300 free sample books remain accessible on the beta site through the end of 2011.

Two video tutorials for searching and browsing within the new interface are now available. Additional instructional materials will be provided shortly after the platform launch. View and share the new tutorials here:
Search Books and Journals on Project MUSE

http://youtu.be/qrR9wM-R2dM

The new platform will provide digital access to over 14,000 books from 66 university presses and related scholarly publishers, alongside MUSE's over 500 electronic journals. A search box on every page of the site offers users the option of searching both books and journals, or filtering by content type prior to running the search. At the search results level, users may again filter to just books or just journals.

At launch on January 1, all of the books in MUSE's new UPCC Book Collections will be visible in search results and when browsing on the platform. Users at libraries which have purchased or subscribed to book collections on MUSE will have full-text access to content from those collections.

MUSE will provide a one-month preview period during January 2012 to allow librarians and scholars to discover the significant breadth and depth of both book and journal content available on Project MUSE. At the end of the preview period, January 31, 2012, search results will default to only content to which the searcher has full-text access. At this point, users will have the option to toggle the search to show all available books and journals relevant to a search, if desired.

Further highlights of the new Project MUSE platform include:
- Faceted searching, with options to filter search results by subject area, author, and language of publication
- Enhanced browsing by subject area, title, or publisher, across books and journals or filtered by content type
- Powerful new hierarchical subject structure, allowing users to drill down to the most relevant content
- Search box on each page of the site, with predictive search terms
- New access icons to help users clearly identify content to which they have paid access, free sample content, and open access content
- Discovery and research tools at both the book and journal article level, including More by This Author and Related Content links, citation downloading/exporting, and social sharing
- "Search Inside..." feature for both books and journals
- DOIs at title and chapter level for books, article level for journals

The beta site and the current site will continue to operate in parallel until December 31, 2011, with the new platform going live January 1, 2012. The Project MUSE URL remains http://muse.jhu.edu. Links to scholarly content in MUSE (journal articles and issues) will not be affected by the platform change, but libraries and users which have bookmarked informational pages within the site may need to update these bookmarks after the January 1 transition.

To reiterate, for the one-month preview period of January 2012, searches on the new platform will default to displaying all relevant book and journal results, unless the user selects to filter to only books or only journals at the time of searching. After January 31, 2012, search results will default to only that journal and/or book content to which a user has full-text access.

Questions about the platform transition, UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE, or related issues may be directed to Project MUSE Customer Support at muse@press.jhu.edu.

Subject: Project MUSE News: Deadline Extended to January 6 for Introductory Offer on Books



Project MUSE Extends Deadline to January 6 for Special Introductory Offer on UPCC Book Collections


Project MUSE's introductory pricing offer initiative for its forthcoming UPCC Book Collections has been extended until January 6, 2012. The special offer, developed with a task force of representatives from the International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC), will provide more favorable pricing on the collections for all participating libraries if order commitments achieve identified targets by the deadline date. MUSE has received a great deal of interest in the introductory offer program, and is extending the deadline to allow more libraries the opportunity to participate.

Arriving January 1, 2012, the UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE will make available over 15,000 titles from 66 respected university presses and scholarly publishers, collectively known as the University Press Content Consortium (UPCC). The incentive discounts in the introductory offer better MUSE's usual consortium discount rates for the collections, and would be available to any library making a purchase commitment as part of the special offer, whether via a consortium purchase or independently. To participate in the special introductory offer, libraries and library consortia must register their UPCC Book Collection purchase commitments with Project MUSE no later than January 6, 2012. Interested libraries and consortia should contact MUSE at mbs@press.jhu.edu for more information, pricing details, and participation instructions. Several current MUSE consortium partners are gathering commitments from their member libraries as part of the initiative; libraries may wish to contact their preferred consortium to see if it is participating in the introductory offer.

About UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE

The UPCC Book Collections will provide libraries, researchers, and students digital access to a wealth of high quality book-length scholarship, fully integrated with MUSE's more than 500 electronic scholarly journals.

Features of the UPCC Book Collections on MUSE include:
- Unlimited simultaneous usage, printing and downloading
- DRM-free PDF format, searchable and retrievable to the chapter level
- COUNTER-compliant usage statistics
- Free MARC records
- Simultaneous publication in e and p formats for new titles
- Perpetual access rights for purchased books

Project MUSE focused on providing the library community with the widest possible array of collection purchasing options. There are 47 different collections to choose from as well as 11 specially-priced three-year current bundles. Offerings include Current Collections, comprised of books published or scheduled to publish in 2010, 2011, and 2012, available as single-year collections or with additional discounts for the purchase of multiple years. Current Complete Collections include all books available across all disciplines for the applicable calendar year, while Current Subject Collections offer books in selected disciplines by calendar year. Also available are Archival Foundation Collections, consisting of many thousands of titles published prior to 2010, allowing libraries to procure access to a critical mass of significant content at very affordable prices. MUSE is not offering single title purchasing or patron-driven access options.

Available subject collections include:
- Archeology and Anthropology
- Classical Studies (Archival Collection only)
- Film, Theater and Performing Arts
- Global Cultural Studies
- Higher Education
- History
- Language and Linguistics (Archival Collection only)
- Literature
- Philosophy and Religion
- Poetry, Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction
- Political Science and Policy Studies
- United States Regional Studies

Participating publishers chose the titles to be offered in the UPCC Book Collections, in consultation with Project MUSE's collection development librarians, with a focus on enriching the depth and breadth of content in disciplines where MUSE has long offered a rich research experience for humanities and social science scholars.

Subject collections were curated and synthesized to fit closely with MUSE's strengths in journal content, with many book publishers specifically targeted for their excellent lists in certain subjects. For example, strong lists in Asian Studies were contributed by the University of Hawaii Press and University of Washington Press, while MUSE worked with Indiana University Press and Ohio University Press to curate a rich African Studies list. Deep content in Theater and Performance Studies was brought together from the University of Michigan Press and Southern Illinois University Press, among others, while both Indiana UP and the SUNY Press were tapped for their distinguished titles in Philosophy, Religion, and Jewish Studies.

Complete title lists for collections from 2011 and earlier are available at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/book_title_lists.html. A preliminary, partial list of titles expected to be included in the 2012 collections is also available. Prices for the 2012 collections are based upon a guaranteed minimum number of titles to be delivered. The list of expected 2012 titles will be updated frequently as specific title information becomes available from the publishers.

Sample MUSE Books on Beta Site

Over 300 free sample books from 27 publishers are currently available for browsing and searching at http://beta.muse.jhu.edu. The beta site, a sneak preview of the enhanced MUSE platform coming January 1, 2012, utilizes a sophisticated new cross-content, faceted search functionality, and allows browsing of books and journals side-by-side. A powerful new hierarchical subject structure permits users to drill down to the most relevant content, and encourages discovery. The beta site also includes the complete content from the over 500 distinguished scholarly journals now available on the current MUSE site. Visitors to the beta site have access to the same content for which they have rights on the current site, via their institutional affiliation and associated subscriptions.

Renaissance Drama

Renaissance Drama is an annual publication dedicated to the investigation of traditional canons of drama, as well as to the exploration of the significance of performance, broadly construed, in early modern cultures. Each volume presents essays that question or apply newer forms of interpretation on the study of early modern plays, theater, and performance. Articles also address works written in traditions other than the English, the discourses that shaped and were shaped by the varied institutions of drama across Europe and beyond its borders within which it was produced, and manifestations of performance and performativity both on and off the theatrical stage.

Subject: Project MUSE News: One Month Remains for Introductory Price Offer on UPCC Book Collections



One Month Remains for Special Introductory Offer on UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE

Project MUSE's introductory pricing offer initiative for its forthcoming UPCC Book Collections, announced early this month, runs through December 15, 2011. Libraries and library consortia interested in participating in the introductory offer are encouraged to contact MUSE for more information, pricing details, and participation instructions.

Arriving January 1, 2012, the UPCC Book Collections on Project MUSE will make available over 14,000 titles from 66 respected university presses and scholarly publishers. Working with a task force of representatives from the International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC), MUSE developed an offer that will provide more favorable pricing on the collections for all participating libraries if order commitments achieve identified targets by the deadline date of December 15, 2011.

The incentive discounts in the introductory offer better MUSE's usual consortium discount rates, and would be available to any library making a purchase commitment as part of the special offer, whether via a consortium purchase or independently.

"We appreciate the overwhelming amount of interest in the UPCC Book Collections from our library customers worldwide, and are very happy to provide an additional incentive for libraries to participate in our offering at the time of launch," said Dean Smith, Director of Project MUSE. "We'd like to reward a strong commitment to our product on behalf of the community."

In order to participate in the special introductory offer, libraries and library consortia must register their UPCC Book Collection purchase commitments with Project MUSE no later than December 15, 2011. Interested libraries and consortia should contact MUSE at mbs@press.jhu.edu for pricing information and details on how to participate. Several current MUSE consortium partners are gathering commitments from their member libraries as part of the initiative; libraries may wish to contact their preferred consortium to see if it is participating in the introductory offer.

Project MUSE will tally the purchase commitments received by the December 15 deadline to determine if the established thresholds have been reached and additional discounts apply. If the sales thresholds needed to trigger the special introductory prices are not reached, Project MUSE will follow up with those libraries and consortia making purchase commitments to see if they would like to acquire their selected collections under standard pricing. In this circumstance, no participating library would be under obligation to make a purchase, and MUSE's standard consortium pricing would still be available to those who qualify. Questions about the offer and how to participate should be directed to mbs@press.jhu.edu.

Subject: Project MUSE News: MUSE Book Collection Details Now Available



For Immediate Release
October 3, 2011

Project MUSE Releases Details on New Book Collections

Details on the highly anticipated Project MUSE Book Collections are now available. Going live on January 1, 2012, the collections will feature over 14,000 electronic titles from 66 respected university press and scholarly publishers. The collections will provide libraries, researchers, and students access to a wealth of high quality book-length scholarship, including both new and classic titles, fully integrated with the over 500 journal titles in MUSE's electronic journal collections, in a user-friendly environment with rich discovery features.

Project MUSE books will be offered in PDF format, searchable and retrievable to the chapter level, with unlimited simultaneous usage, no DRM, and no restrictions on printing or downloading. COUNTER-compliant usage statistics, as well as free MARC records, will be available.

In early 2011, the collaborative electronic book initiatives started by both the Johns Hopkins University Press and the University Press eBook Consortium (UPeC) merged their efforts to create the new University Press Content Consortium (UPCC), to be developed and presented by Project MUSE. This collaboration will now make 14,000 thousand peer-reviewed scholarly books available digitally for perpetual access purchase, many for the first time, via 26 collections that draw from 66 presses.

Information on available Project MUSE Book Collections, along with detailed title lists, is accessible on the MUSE web site at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/book_collections.html. Libraries may request pricing for book collections by using the form at http://muse.jhu.edu/order/quote. Several flexible purchase and payment options are offered, with special pricing incentives for select purchases of multiple book collections. Orders may be placed at any time, with access to content beginning on January 1, 2012.

Current Collections for Purchase

The launch of books on MUSE will allow libraries and other institutions to purchase Current Collections comprised of content published or scheduled to publish in 2010, 2011, and 2012, available as single-year collections or with special discounts for the purchase of multiple years. Current Complete Collections include all books available across all disciplines for the applicable calendar year, while Current Subject Collections offer books in selected disciplines by calendar year. Subject collections available include Archeology and Anthropology; Film, Theater and Performing Arts; Global Cultural Studies; Higher Education; History; Literature; Philosophy and Religion; Poetry, Fiction and Creative Non-Fiction; Political Science and Policy Studies; and United States Regional Studies.

The content in the book collections available for purchase on MUSE is stable, and the titles included for collections from 2011 and earlier will not change. No additional titles will be added to these collections, and titles will not be removed unless a legal or copyright issue requires such action. Complete lists of the titles included in these collections are available for download from the MUSE web site at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/book_title_lists.html.

For the forthcoming 2012 book collections, new titles will publish simultaneously in electronic and print formats. A preliminary, partial list of titles expected to be included in the 2012 collections is available at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/book_title_lists.html. Prices for the 2012 collections are based upon a guaranteed minimum number of titles to be delivered, derived from estimates provided by the participating publishers for the titles they intend to submit to MUSE. The list of expected 2012 titles will be updated frequently as specific title information becomes available from the publishers.

Archival Collections for Purchase and Subscription

MUSE is also offering archival Foundation Collections, consisting of thousands of titles published prior to 2010, allowing libraries to procure access to a critical mass of significant content from numerous university presses, across many disciplines, at very affordable prices. A Complete Foundation Collection with over 11,000 titles is available, along with several Subject Foundation Collections. The subjects include all those offered for the Current Collections (listed above), with the addition of Classical Studies and Language and Linguistics. Complete title lists for the Foundation Collections are also available at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/book_title_lists.html. In future years, Supplemental Archive Collections will be offered to build upon the Foundation Collections, with content from additional publishers joining the MUSE digital books program and from currently participating publishers digitizing and contributing more backlist books.

MUSE will also offer an access-only subscription option, providing access to all books categorized by MUSE as archival during the period of the subscription. This collection will grow from year to year as more backlist titles are added to MUSE, and as current titles move into archive status. No ownership rights are provided with this option, and the subscription must be renewed annually to retain access to the content.

Sample MUSE Books on Beta Site

Over 300 free sample digital books from 27 publishers are currently available for browsing and searching at http://beta.muse.jhu.edu. The beta site, a sneak preview of the enhanced MUSE platform coming January 1, 2012, utilizes a sophisticated new cross-content, faceted search functionality, and allows browsing of books and journals side-by-side.

Subject: Project MUSE News: New beta site offers preview of book and journal content



MUSE Beta Site offers preview of integrated book and journal content

Project MUSE has released a beta web site previewing its combined digital book and journal content. The beta site, http://beta.muse.jhu.edu, will be available through the end of this year, allowing scholars, librarians, and students to become familiar with the newly enhanced platform before the changeover to accommodate MUSE's forthcoming eBook Collections on January 1, 2012.

The beta site showcases Project MUSE's sophisticated new cross-content, faceted search functionality, and allows browsing of books and journals side-by-side. A powerful new hierarchical subject structure permits users to drill down to the most relevant content, and encourages discovery. Over 300 digital books, from 27 publishers, are available for free sample access on the site during the beta period. The MUSE collections launching in January will encompass over 12,000 book titles from the University Press Content Consortium (UPCC), a collaborative of more than 65 major university presses and related scholarly publishers. The beta site is still in active development, with many additional features planned for inclusion prior to January.

Project MUSE’s beta site also includes the complete content from the nearly 500 distinguished scholarly journals now available on the current MUSE site. Visitors to the beta site will have access to the same content for which they have rights on the current site, via their institutional affiliation and associated subscriptions. New easy-to-follow icons clearly distinguish content which is available in full text to the user, a free sample or open access, or restricted.

The new search functionality on the beta site provides a search box on every page, with an option for the user to search both books and journals or choose just one content type. Once search results are returned, facets allow for further filtering the results by research area, author, language, and content type, and to only material for which the user has full text access. Search results may include journal articles or book chapters, with multiple results from a single book title rolled up into a single cumulative entry. Efforts are ongoing to optimize the search function to return the most relevant results with the best possible speed.

Browsing of book and journal content is available by title, publisher, and research area. MUSE is implementing a new hierarchical structure of academic research areas, promoting discovery of pertinent content while moving from a broad survey through to specific sub-disciplines. With over 12,000 books anticipated for inclusion in MUSE's initial ebook collections, the new structure will provide a powerfully efficient path to the most needed material.

At the individual book level, users can browse chapter-level snippets and view pertinent details about each title. A "Search Inside This Book" feature allows for discovery within the book content without leaving the title's main page. Breadcrumbs leading back to the hierarchical research areas provide paths to related books and journals.

Many features are still in development on Project MUSE's new site and will be released over the next few months. The following will be available by the formal site launch on January 1, 2012, for both books and journal articles: enhanced Related Content links; improved saving, viewing, and exporting of citations; content-integrated "More by this Author" links; and emailing, bookmarking, and sharing capabilities. Support for OpenURL functionality and Shibboleth authentication will also be in place by January 1.

Project MUSE eBook Collections will provide libraries, researchers, and students access to a wealth of high quality book-length scholarship, fully integrated with MUSE's essential electronic journal collections in a user-friendly environment with rich discovery features. MUSE books will be released electronically simultaneous with print publication, in PDF format, searchable and retrievable to the chapter level. Frontlist, backlist, interdisciplinary, and subject-specific collections will be available for purchase, with perpetual access rights, unlimited simultaneous usage of book content, no DRM and no restrictions on printing or downloading. COUNTER-compliant usage statistics, as well as free MARC records, will be available for books on MUSE. Details on available collections, purchase options, and prices will be announced no later than October 1, 2011. The new, integrated Project MUSE web site, including book collections, will be live on January 1, 2012. More details are available at http://muse.jhu.edu/ebooks.

Subject: Project MUSE News: UPCC e-Book Collections Coming Soon to Project MUSE



Project MUSE recently announced an exciting new partnership with the University Press e-Book Consortium (UPeC), to launch UPCC e-Book Collections, powered by Project MUSE. UPCC, the University Press Content Consortium, is expected to offer thousands of digital books from a significant number of major university presses and related scholarly publishers. This new initiative will supplant MUSE's previously-announced Project MUSE Editions e-book program, resulting in some changes to MUSE's e-book offering. Project MUSE is thrilled to be expanding its program through this partnership, and is confident the UPCC Collections will offer libraries, researchers, and students a wealth of high quality book-length scholarship, on a platform that enhances discovery and provides easy use.

What's new about the UPCC e-Book Collections on MUSE:

- The collections will launch in January 2012, rather than the previously announced date of July 1, 2011. The extra time will allow for contract arrangements with additional publishers, and the production of many more books for the initial offering.
- Collections will be sold in full calendar-year packages, rather than six-month bundles.
- Along with upcoming frontlist books, many books published in 2010 and 2011 will be available immediately in January 2012. Comprehensive and subject-based collections will be available for each year, and very special pricing will be available for bundles of books from all three years!
- Partial title lists will be available for the upcoming calendar year's collections, along with a guaranteed number of titles to be delivered. Flexibility in collection development for the UPCC collections allows for delivery of more books at reasonable cost.
- Archival collections of backlist titles are also being developed, and will be offered at attractive prices, allowing access to these important books in MUSE's integrated research environment with our library-friendly terms.
- Details on purchase options and prices will be announced no later than October 1, 2011. MUSE will provide updates on participating publishers and estimated numbers of books throughout this year as information becomes available.
- A beta platform including sample book content, and a new integrated search interface, will launch late this summer. The beta will run in parallel to the current MUSE site, for review and feedback, until the launch of the UPCC Collections in January 2012.

What's not changing about MUSE's e-book offering:

- Books in the UPCC Collections will be fully integrated on the MUSE platform: users will be able to search across combined book and journal content, or limit searches by content type.
- Digital books will be released electronically at the same time the print book is released.
- Books will be from not-for-profit organizations with rigorous peer-review and editorial processes.
- Unlimited simultaneous usage of book content will be allowed, with no DRM and no restrictions on printing or downloading.
- Books will be in PDF format.
- Books will be searchable and retrievable to the chapter level.
- COUNTER-compliant usage statistics will be available.
- Free MARC records will be provided for all books.

The complete announcement of MUSE's new partnership with the UPeC group may be found at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/new/ebook_collections.html.

For more details about how books will be integrated into the MUSE platform, please see the FAQ about MUSE/UPCC books, http://muse.jhu.edu/about/muse/faq_books.html. Please contact muse@press.jhu.edu with any questions about the UPCC e-Book Collections on Project MUSE, and watch the MUSE web site for more news soon.
