HEB is Moving!
Humanities E-Book began as a cutting edge digital collection of premiere humanities titles for over 15 years ago, and although our collection development strategies have evolved, some elements of our platform have been late to table of new publishing technologies. That is changing.
HEB’s publishing partner, Michigan Publishing, is currently working on the Fulcrum platform, a project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The platform is building on the Hydra/Fedora framework, a popular choice of many well-established research libraries looking for improved functionalities in their digital repositories and other content management solutions. HEB joins a prestigious group of publishers partnering with the Fulcrum platform, such as Northwestern University Press, University of Minnesota Press, and Indiana University Press, among others.
Below is a preview of some features that are currently being developed as a part of the new platform.
Reflowable Text allows you to access and read across multiple devices.
Chapter Downloads makes the text more convenient and accessible on- or offline.
Other features include “Get Citation” to easily cite your sources and “Search” to find relevant material throughout the text.
Watch the videos below to learn why HEB has decided that Fulcrum is the platform for our premiere collection and to preview some of the improvements coming in 2018! Just as HEB was a game changer 15 years ago for the digital humanities market, Fulcrum is a game changer for the way scholars publish, communicate, and interact with the online scholarly materials in humanities .
