Humanities E-Book (HEB) has been a cutting edge collection of backlist humanities titles for over 15 years now, and now we are holding our website to the same standards we hold our collection to. We hope that you find the new website easier to use and easier on the eyes…but if you have a concern or comment about the new site, please feel free to email HEB’s Marketing & Production Manager Christopher Plattsmier with your message! Inevitably with a new site there will be some kinks, so please be patient as we coordinate this update with our partners at the University of Michigan. Right now, the live titles are still in the previous web format, so apologies for any confusion if you jump between HEB’s WordPress site and the collection.
With the new website, it is now easier for librarians and faculty to navigate the HEB website across any device and get to what they need. The new website also allows HEB to show off our wonderful publishing partners more, as well as the 30+ learned societies of the ACLS that work with HEB to curate our collection.
Besides the aesthetic benefits, moving to a WordPress theme also allows HEB to keep our subscribers and users more up to date with company news, collection development, and the upcoming platform migration. HEB wants our users to not only be aware of the superb content in the HEB collection, but to see that HEB is actively finding ways to improve everything about the user experience, so that our mission of disseminating high quality scholarship in the humanities can reach as many scholars and students possible.
