Originally entitled History E-Book Project but it has grown to include other disciplines and has earned a new title. A collaboration of prominent university presses, scholarly associations, and the American Council of Learned Societies. All periods and much geography are covered. The history of the United States is a major focus. Monographs were selected for digitalization on the basis of their recognized importance and record of heavy citation. The Project is a searchable collection of interrelated and interlinked scholarly books, including a frontlist of books first published in electronic format. HEB is growing by over 500 titles per year and features unlimited, multi-user access and free MARC records and downloadable stats.
