ACLS History E-Book Project Launches POD Program

ACLS History E-Book Project recently launched its new Print-on-Demand Program, making 250 hard-to-find and out-of-print books readily available to students, scholars, and the general public. Working with the University of Michigan’s Scholarly Publishing Office (SPO) and the POD vendor Lightning Source, HEB uses its own digital files and digital printing techniques to produce standard print books in a rapid and cost-effective process that approaches the quality of the original print editions.

Titles are available in all fields and in a range of formats, including hardcover editions, looseleaf reader’s copies, spiral copies, and tapebound copies. Prices run from ¢11/page to ¢15/page, well below the cost of these books on the rare-book market. The books included in the program are indicated on the Project website by an ordering button on the title record page. HEB will continue to add POD titles as the Project’s overall collection grows.

For a complete list of current POD titles, go to: http://www.humanitiesebook.org/the-collection/print-on-demand.html .

Buyers may click through the link to purchase titles. Allow for an average of two weeks delivery.

Please contact us if you would like to initiate a subscription, would like a trial, or have any questions: info@hebook.org.
