TRIAL: University Press Scholarship Online

We have a trial of University Press Scholarship Online until 8th June 2013.

To access this trial go to http://www.universitypressscholarship.com.

For off-campus access, use AppsAnywhere. If we acquired this resource we would link to it via EZproxy as usual.

University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) offers full-text access to the best scholarly publishing from around the world, making disparately published scholarship easily accessible, highly discoverable, and fully cross-searchable via a single online platform. As well as content from Oxford University Press and Policy Press (most of which we already have access to), UPSO includes e-books from the following publishers:

• The American University in Cairo Press
• University of Chicago Press
• University of California Press
• Edinburgh University Press
• University Press of Florida
• Fordham University Press
• Hong Kong University Press
• The University Press of Kentucky
• Manchester University Press

The following publishers will be added later in 2013:

• Liverpool University Press - Launching 2013
• The MIT Press - Launching 2013
• Stanford University Press - Launching 2013
• Yale University Press - Launching 2013
After trying University Press Scholarship Online, please leave your comments below, specifying the publisher(s) and subject(s) you are most interested in. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.

Books published by Fordham, Florida and MUP would be useful to students I teach, and from time to time doubtless relevant volumes will appear from several of the other publishers as well. Main areas - Medieval Lit, Children's Lit, Women's Writing. I think this would be worth having.

Chicago, MUP, Yale UP ... all include in their lists books essential for my research, and one or two that are extremely valuable for teaching too. A must-have, I would have thought ...

Access to Oxford Scholarship Online would be very valuable, as they publish some key texts (certainly in my field (History). In some cases we may already have a hard copy, but having the e-book available would obviate very common student complaints about lack of availability of academic monographs. On the other hand I may be biased as my own monograph is published by them!

Excellent resource, very welcome for research (primarily) and teaching. In terms of subject areas, History, Litearture, Philosophy, Neuroscience, would be especially helpful to me; in terms of presses, OUP, Edinburgh, Chicago, Manchester, but all welcome. Also, much easier reading format than the (awful) ebrary reader.
